Adherence to prescription opioid and opioid tapering as indicated are critical for safe chronic opioid therapy for chronic pain, but this can be difficult for patients experiencing prescription opioid craving. Because pain catastrophizing is proposed as a possible treatment target by our and others' preliminary results, the proposed study aims to determine whether pain catastrophizing is a treatment target to reduce prescription opioid craving and to investigate whether negativ...
The goal of this study is to investigate the association between response to pain and opioid craving in people with opioid use disorder. In this study, adults with opioid use disorder will be randomized to one of two brief education sessions followed by an assessment of response to pain. Investigators will test the association between response to pain and opioid craving.
Prescription opioids are one of the most commonly used treatments for chronic pain, despite limited evidence of their efficacy and high morbidity and mortality risks. The study aims to determine the efficacy of a targeted single-session psychology class in reducing opioid use among patients with chronic pain. The information gained from this study has the potential to identify patients who achieve a meaningful reduction in opioid use and inform opioid reduction strategies.
The investigators hypothesize that opioid prescription guided by patient pharmacogenetic profile will diminish opioid-associated undesirable effects by 50% and improve medication compliance.
Pregnant women using prescription opioid medication (pain medications) are invited to take part in a program for the reduction of pain and prescription opioid misuse.
The aim of this study is to determine if a standardized evidence-based opioid prescription following elective hand and forearm surgery at Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) will decrease the number of unused opioid pills consumed by patients while still maintaining adequate pain control as compared to usual treatment. Currently, no standardized prescription exists at our institution.
This study evaluates the potential association between pain catastrophizing thoughts and the ability to dampen pain via endogenous descending inhibition. Half of the participants are persons with chronic low back pain and the other half are age and gender-matched controls
Overall, this proposal seeks to improve treatment strategies for the significant public health problem of prescription opioid dependence by determining whether gabapentin, a non-narcotic pharmaceutical agent with minimal abuse potential and preliminary efficacy, will be effective in ameliorating withdrawal symptoms, craving and illicit drug use in prescription opioid dependent participants undergoing a 10-day detoxification from buprenorphine. In addition, the acceptability and...
The Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) is a psychometric tool to identify PC. A positive correlation between PCS scores and various pain outcomes has been reported in acute and chronic pain settings. Preoperative catastrophizing is associated with an increased intensity of postoperative pain and more analgesic consumption. Likewise, a recent meta-analysis revealed that PC is a strong predictor of persistent postsurgical pain. The Nepali version of PCS has been validated recently ...
The investigators will utilize the electronic health record to individualize pain therapy in surgical patients after hospital discharge using last 24-hour opioid intake as the decision variable for the amount of opioid pain pills prescribed. The preliminary data indicate that current opioid prescription practice after surgery follows a "one size fits all" pattern. In-hospital opioid use 24 hours prior to discharge serves as a strong indicator to correctly estimate needs for ana...
Opioid naive patients are randomized to receive either TRAMACET or PERCOCET at the time of discharge following mild to moderate pain risk surgery. The following will be assessed: 1) Brief pain inventory (BPI) for the month. 2) Post operative pain management satisfaction. 3) Whether they sought any repeat opioid prescription. 4) Whether they intend to seek repeat opioid prescription. It is expected that both groups will have similar pain outcomes but those patients in the Percoc...
This study proposes to experimentally manipulate pain catastrophizing in order to investigate the neural mechanisms by which pain catastrophizing influences the experience of pain among non-Hispanic Blacks (NHBs) and non- Hispanic Whites (NHWs) with knee osteoarthritis (OA). Therefore, participants will be randomized to either a single session cognitive-behavioral intervention to reduce pain catastrophizing or a pain education control group.
The purpose of this study is to prospectively follow a cohort of traumatically injured adolescents to 1) Identify patient-reported factors for sustained prescription opioid use, including chronic pain and mental health conditions such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders by longitudinally surveying injured adolescents; and 2) Assess clinical, behavioral, and social predictors of prescription opioid misuse and nonmedical opioid use.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the patient usability and reliability of the POMAQ survey to evaluate opioid misuse and abuse among adults with chronic moderate to severe pain, including patients who are opioid abusers, non-abusers, as well as non-opioid users
The purposes of this study are to evaluate the validity and reproducibility of the POMAQ to identify opioid abuse and misuse behaviors among participants who have chronic pain which requires long-term opioid use.
The consequences of prescription opioid abuse are serious and the number of deaths from unintended overdose have quadrupled over the last 15+ years. Opioid analgesics remain among the most commonly abused class of substances in the United States. Moreover, patients who take pain medications for legitimate reasons may develop an opioid use disorder (OUD), with as many as 1 in 4 patients becoming dependent on their pain medications. Because of changing access to prescription opio...
Addiction is known as a chronic relapsing brain disorder that has a high cost to patients, family and society. Its ranking in cause of death is 8th globally, and substance abuse contributes 5.4% of the total global burden of disease. Brain stimulation procedures such as repetitive trans-cranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and trans-cranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) are considered minimal risk interventions and are used for the treatment of depression, pain, and other ne...
Genetic variability from epigenetic modification of genes related to pain physiology and opioid pharmacodynamics may influence susceptibility to high-impact chronic musculoskeletal pain, opioid efficacy, and vulnerability to opioid abuse. Exploring the role of epigenomics and opioid addiction may improve understanding and treatment of these complex multifactorial conditions and, potentially, reduce their development.
The central aim of this study is to test the efficacy of Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE), an intervention designed to disrupt the risk chain leading from chronic pain to prescription opioid misuse and addiction. The investigators plan to conduct a full scale clinical trial to determine whether MORE (relative to a support group control condition) can reduce symptoms of chronic pain and opioid misuse among patients who are receiving pain management in primary car...
The goal of this study is to determine if non-opioid pain control is a safe way to manage pain after adenotonsillectomy surgery in children. We will be randomly assigning children aged 3-17 to one of two groups: one group will receive non-opioid pain medication only, and the other group will receive opioid and non-opioid medications for pain control. We will analyze the data and determine if there is a difference in pain control between the two drug regimens, and if there are a...

Although stress has long been linked to substance use, craving and relapse, there are no available medications that target stress-induced substance use disorder (SUD). In particular, with the rise in opioid use, there is still a crucial need for developing effective pharmacological treatments that target and integrate the complexity of this disease. The long term goal of this project is to identify the key neuroendocrine pathways that are responsible for stress-induced craving ...
Currently there is a nationwide epidemic in opioid abuse and overdose deaths. While the opioid epidemic is multi-factorial one major source of excess opioids may be over-prescribing in the post-operative period. There is wide variation in the prescribing practices for post-operative pain control and there is no standard of care for pain control after minor laparoscopic surgery in general or after gynecologic laparoscopy. There is also evidence to show that on average half of th...
The purpose of this project is to assess the impact of an educational video on the use of prescription opioid medication during a 6-month period following spine surgery. Subjects will be recruited from the pool of patients coming in for the pre-operative appointment prior to spine surgery. Patients that consent and enroll will be randomized to receive either a brief educational video at this appointment or usual care. Patients will be followed after surgery weekly for the first...
Legitimate prescription opioid use during adolescence has been associated with later prescription opioid misuse and substance use disorder symptoms during adulthood. Thus, primary prevention interventions for older adolescents and young adults (18-24 yrs) at the time of prescribing are imperative. The goal of our research is to improve opioid analgesic safety and efficacy by optimizing opioid risk recognition and informed decision-making among 18-24 year olds who are prescribe...
