Chronic pain, which is usually defined as pain that lasts for at least three months, affects millions of Americans. Common causes of chronic pain include injury, illness, and nerve damage. Many people with chronic pain use opioid medications to relieve their pain, but for some people these medications can be habit-forming.
The purpose of this study is to help researchers better understand the behavioral, mental, and physical health of people with chronic pain, and to better understand their use of opioids, alcohol, and other substances. Researchers hope their findings will lead to better care for people with chronic pain in the future.
