Support Groups

Back to About Us main page.

You can start an ACPA group.

ACPA groups welcome anyone who is living with an ongoing pain problem.

The goal of an ACPA group is to provide support, validation, and education in basic pain management and life skills. Groups are facilitated by the group members themselves and the success of the group is a shared responsibility.

ACPA groups do not focus on symptoms or provide treatment of any kind. Rather they are a means for people to share what they have learned and to encourage others to create more satisfying lives.

Select a state to see if there is a group located near you: For contact information on the group you are interested in, call 800-533-3231 or email ACPA@theacpa.org

If you are a person with pain and interested in starting a support group, please contact our Outreach Coordinator, at 800.533.3231.
