Chronic pain and addiction

In response to the epidemic of Opiate overdoses in our community, the Lynn Community Health Center has developed formal, evidence-based prescribing guidelines in order to address the need for proper and safe management of chronic pain.  It is our policy to assist patients in safely reducing the level of potentially harmful medications to help reduce opioid addiction and overdose deaths in the city of Lynn.  

Some important facts for everyone to know:

Get your flu shot!

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat,and lungs.  It can cause mild to severe illness, and can at times lead to death.  The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated.  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months of age or older be vaccinated annually against influenza.  Patients at the health center should contact their primary care team about getting vaccinated.
