ACPA Support Groups

ACPA Support 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.

Type the name of a US State or Canadian Territory in the search box below to find local support groups. For contact information on the group you are interested in, email ACPA@theacpa.org.
