What we aim to solve

The medical model provides limited options (medication, surgery, and/or physical therapy) for people living with chronic pain. This model allows for gaps in services and can be a source of confusion and frustration for those suffering from chronic pain. The Chronic Pain Resource Center of South Texas bridges these gaps through a comprehensive assessment of the impact of chronic pain on the individual and the family. Our proactive approach includes reaching out to local providers to collaborate and identify clients with potential needs. We continuously seek those in need to be the bridge from pain to person. Our volunteers assist individuals and families in navigating the health care system to reach the appropriate professionals in the field of pain management, nutrition education, physical therapy, and more.

Our organization bridges gaps in services through providing a biopsychosocial model of care for individuals and families living with chronic pain. We provide the education, tools, and connections to help people with pain improve their quality of life.

Through assessment, referrals, mental health services, caregiver support, social service support, education, and outreach our organization carries out its mission to empower individuals and families to create happier, healthier lives.

Leadership for the organization is provided through the incredible diverse skill sets and professions represented on our volunteer board. Our volunteers work to move our mission forward by providing mental health services in support of individuals and families struggling with chronic pain and their complex struggles.

Upon intake for services, clients are administered a biopsychosocial interview by a mental health clinician. This assessment forms the basis of a mental health treatment plan and identifies needed community, medical, psychiatric, or social service referrals. Upon completion of referrals and administered services clients complete a self-report survey to assess provided services for effectiveness and appropriateness.

The organization began providing a free support group to individuals who experience chronic pain in September 2018. This group continues to meet biweekly. In 2019 a teen support group was added to meet the needs of families living with pain. Parent support groups will be added Summer 2020.
