In 2013, NCFRP conducted an Outcomes Measure study across multiple dimensions of the program.

NCFRP outcomes include multiple functional measures, medication usage, pre/post-employment status, and multiple measures of pain-related psychological functioning.

For NCFRP participants that sought employment post-program, a significantly high percentage of them were successful.

  • 24% average reduction in opioid usage post-NCFRP
  • 71% of those completing NCFRP return to some type of work
  • 96% of patients are Permanent & Stationary post program
