Chronic pain is highly prevalent in clinical counseling populations, but may not be the initial presenting concern. However, as the overall distribution of narcotic pain medication prescriptions by medical professionals, becomes more highly regulated/decreased in many states, clients are beginning to reach out to mental health professionals, who they believe may be able to help them. Counselors can assist clients who live in chronic pain by providing ACT counseling interventions, to address the challenges and complexities of chronic pain.
