UF Researchers Receive $1.46 Million Grant To Implement Alternatives to Opioids Program

Imagine a world where emergency room patients and providers have access to a menu of pain management treatment options that include a blend of traditional and integrative techniques.

This is the vision held by a team at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville looking to create a new way of caring for patients with a variety of pain conditions. With funding received by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, or SAMHSA, this concept will soon become a reality at the UF Health Jacksonville and UF Health North emergency rooms.

“I am proud of our emergency medicine research team for being awarded this SAMHSA grant to institute such an important program at UF Health Jacksonville,” said Steven Godwin, M.D., FACEP, a professor of emergency medicine and chair of the department of emergency medicine. “This accomplishment speaks volumes about the dedication our physicians have for providing high-quality care and developing innovative pain practices to benefit our patients.”
