Wellness, Integrity, and Sustainable Health (WISH) Pain Management Program
WISH is a multidisciplinary integrated medical and behavioral health program designed to treat chronic pain, effectively and compassionately, with the understanding that the experience of pain affects the whole of the patient. Our primary goal is to increase your quality of life. We believe a holistic approach to the management of pain will allow for improved function and the reduction of debilitating symptoms.
We are all a community of individuals and your care should reflect that. The effective treatment of chronic pain demands a system of care that understands you as an individual. Your treatment begins by creating meaningful and lasting relationships with your providers. For nearly 30 years, Quest has long held the belief that effective healing requires a supportive and understanding community.
Our focus is your wellness – Understanding the source of your pain and its impact on your life is critical to addressing the issue of chronic pain. Our goal is to respectfully address the totality of your condition regardless of whether that is solely chronic pain or with issues of mental health, opioid dependency, and/or substance abuse.
In a healing setting your integrity is our focus. Our treatment coordinators will work with you and your primary care physician to determine and structure a program specifically tailored to your pain management needs. With an assortment of tools and capabilities, we shape treatment programs that are manageable and sustainable by integrating acupuncture, yoga, mental health, medication management, treatment from substance use disorders, nutrition and peer support in a community setting.
WISH Program Strategies
We offer a full range of services to help you start on the path to good health within our program. The following evidenced-based interventions are designed to restore function and reduce pain.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a medical technique for helping the body to heal and balance the flow of energy in the body. Acupuncture, the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at specific points on your body, stimulates nerves, muscles and connective tissue to boost your body’s natural ability to alleviate pain and increase blood flow.
A course of related exercises and postures designed to promote physical and spiritual well-being. A practice that can become a part of anyone’s healing journey. In the WISH Program, you will be introduced to mindfulness and yoga postures through a gentle approach that truly feels like an hour of self-care and skill building.
Our Mental Health Department offers a variety of evidence-based outpatient mental health care practices from a variety of disciplines. Our belief is that health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.
We understand the challenges that can come with trying to balance our lives with our health care. To help build your success, the WISH Program offers peer support mentors that aid with the transition of entering a new program and help to navigate resources. It always helps to have just one more person of support in your corner.
Substance Abuse Treatment
Specializing in multiple levels of care from education to intensive outpatient services, our addictions team is dedicated to help guide you in the healing of mind, body and spirit. We offer this service with the understanding that not all our WISH clients require substance abuse treatment. However, for those that do, our program is available.
Community Nutrition Nights are offered every Thursday at Quest Center to educate the community on the benefits of whole foods as well as, the connection between the foods we eat and how it affects physical and mental health.
