Sign the petition on Change.org for the Ohio Governor and Congress to approve a certification process linking all responsible parties in the treatment of pain and addiction along with regulations to end the baseless restrictions on prescriptions for chronic pain management.

3. Connect With Other Patients And Advocates

Participate In The Next Pain Rally Near You

Join the Don’t Punish Pain Facebook Group to connect with others working to organize rallies/protests throughout the United States. Another rally is scheduled in major cities on Wednesday, May 22th, 2019. Protests will be held at your state’s capitol, ERs, hospitals, pain management centers, CDC, FDA, DEA, Department of Health, CVS, parks, and other venues that are suitable to receive media coverage. The focus is to raise awareness and provide a voice to the neglect that the chronically ill community/pain patients have experienced due to the new CDC guidelines, the DEA, and the FDA’s involvement.
