Support coverage for, access to, and payment of comprehensive, multi-disciplinary, multi-modal evidence-based treatment for patients with pain, a substance use disorder or mental illness.

Particular emphasis must be placed on individualized patient care decisions, protecting patients with pain, a substance use disorder or mental illness from continued stigma and addressing a lack of access to evidence-based care or accepted best practices.
