For Pain Management Patients

CAC - Operation Breakthrough

Welcome to Columbia Treatment Center! We appreciate the opportunity to work with you during this time in your life. Although your physical pain may not fully leave you, through pain management it’s possible to reduce your physical pain level, relieve emotional pain, improve your quality of life and broaden your focus so that physical pain, though an important element in your life, no longer defines you.
