Summary The management of chronic noncancer pain (CNCP) in patients with a comorbid substance use disorder (SUD) is challenging for both patients and clinicians; however, it can be done successfully. This TIP advises clinicians to conduct a careful assessment; develop a treatment plan that addresses pain, functional impairment, and psychological symptoms; and closely monitor patients for relapse. Even the best treatment is unlikely to completely eliminate chronic pain, and efforts to achieve total pain relief can be self-defeating. Patients may benefit when clinicians team with other professionals (e.g., psychologists, addiction counselors, pharmacists, holistic care providers). Patients must also assume a significant amount of responsibility for optimal management of their pain. Educating patients, family members, and caregivers in this process, and helping patients improve their quality of life, can be gratifying for everyone involved.
