IPC serves as a curated news and resource page for patients living with complex, rare, and progressive chronic diseases which cause ongoing intractable pain and untold suffering. This page is dedicated to the multitude of victims of the CDC prescribing recommendations: America’s opioid refugees.

The Intractable Pain Collective recognizes the ostensible reasons for forced tapering of pain medication are not scientifically supported. See Long term opioid management for chronic noncaner pain (2010, Cochrane Review)

The CDC 2016 Prescribing Guidelines for Opioids in Chronic Pain have decimated the doctor-physician relationship, however it is not too late for chronic pain patients to organize as a voting block and work to restore justice, transparency, and ethical compassion to medicine.
