Note: In March 2016, the CDC published “Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain.” Since then, in response to the tragic overdose deaths and the addiction to opioids of thousands of Americans, governmental bodies, legislative as well as executive, at all levels as well as health insurers, national pharmacy chains, and individual pharmacists have exerted profound pressures to limit the amounts of opioids being prescribed. Moreover, there is mounting scientific evidence that the risks of true addiction, the effects on hormones, the euphoria and clouding effects on brain function, opioid caused constipation, and the compromising of respiration may be dose-related.
Hypnotherapy is an amalgamation of hypnosis and therapeutic intervention. The therapist leads the patient to positive change while the patient is in a trance (a deeply relaxed in a state of heightened suggestibility).

We use this technique for the patients suffering from chronic pain so that he/she can be taught to control the pain without the use of medications. Moreover, it is also useful to stop self-destructive and addictive habits like smoking, drug addiction.
