The Family Medicine Foundation of West Virginia is proud to partner with the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation and West Virginia’s health care providers to develop an improved and evidence-based chronic pain treatment model.

One profound health issue challenging health care providers across the country is the treatment of chronic pain. This issue has become further complicated by the rise in prescription drug abuse and a recent spike in heroin use.  In West Virginia, drug abuse has reached epidemic levels, and the Family Medicine Foundation of West Virginia and the Benedum Foundation are determined to provide support and resources to providers statewide.
