Resources for Seattle Pain Clinic Patients

The Department of Health has launched a webpage with advice for pain patients that had been seen at one of the eight Seattle Pain Clinics around the state. Patients will first be directed to their primary care provider. The last option listed will be for the patients to go to their local ED or urgent care clinic. Review the WA-ACEP Pain Medication Safety Guidelines in the Emergency Department and be prepared for an increase in patients who may be experiencing withdrawal from opioids, benzodiazepines or other controlled substances.
