NO NARCOTICS POLICY

PFH is committed to providing high quality medical care to our patients. We will continue to evaluate and treat pain experienced by our patients. We will offer conservative narcotic-free treatment of chronic pain which is associated with some medical conditions. There are multiple options for treating acute pain including oral medications, physical therapy, splinting, exercise, heat and cold, etc. which we can provide or refer our patients. At times, certain conditions will not be able to be treated in our clinic because we will not be able to provide services in a safe and effective method.

The treatment of chronic pain with narcotics has resulted in thousands of deaths, abuse, and diversion of narcotics into our schools and society. Tennessee is one of the states which has been the most severely affected. After evaluating the new guidelines for dispensing chronic narcotics, we have determined our clinic is not set up to and therefore will not manage chronic pain with narcotics.

In the case of a need or desire for chronic narcotic therapy, we recommend obtaining care from a clinic which specifically treats chronic pain. Patients who choose to pursue this option will still have the opportunity for their other medical problems to be treated by PFH. PFH will under no circumstances however provide any chronic narcotic therapy.
