About Haven


Most people experience pain at some time in their lives. But for many, pain becomes a recurrent or chronic condition that profoundly impacts the quality of their lives and their physical and mental well-being. Pain medications and anesthetics are often prescribed to manage the pain, without treating its underlying cause. As a consequence people may suffer for many years, and often see their condition deteriorate over time.


“But there is an answer to pain. With the correct diagnosis and treatment, you can reclaim your life.”
