With the advance online publication of “Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement for Chronic Pain and Prescription Opioid Misuse: Results from an Early Stage Randomized Controlled Trial” in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology on February 3rd, over 10 news stories have covered this work. For example, the study was covered by the University of Utah news department in the story¬† “Mind Over Matter: Beating Pain and Painkillers”, by Medical Daily in “Pain Management: M.O.R.E. Therapy uses Mental Interventions to Combat Chronic Pain, Opioid Painkillers Misuse”, by Science World Report in “New Pain Treatment Aims to Reduce Prescription Opioids”¬† and by Healthline in “A Mindful Way to Beat Chronic Pain.” It is my sincere hope that this news coverage will ultimately help more people suffering from chronic pain to find the relief and comfort they are seeking.
