Accessing Pain Management Care

  • If you have a primary health care provider, contact them for care or for a referral for care.
  • If you do not have a primary health care provider, contact your health insurance company. Call the number on the back of your insurance card for assistance.
  • If you do not have health insurance, find out how to get insurance from the WA Health Plan Finder or call 1-855-923-4633.

Managing Withdrawals

  • If you stop your pain medications suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal from opioids can be difficult, but it’s not likely to cause harm to your body. Symptoms can include severe anxiety, restlessness, nausea, diarrhea, muscle pain, or insomnia.
  • If you’ve been taking a benzodiazepine such as Xanax, Valium, or Ativan for a long time and stop suddenly, you may have more severe, even life-threatening problems.

If your pain or withdrawal symptoms become severe, go to the Emergency Room of your local hospital or an urgent care clinic.
