With an eye for ensuring that persons with opioid use disorder (OUD) receive adequate and humane pain care, this presentation will focus on what is known about the pain responses and pain sensitivity of persons with OUD with implications for management of their pain. Putative evidence for opioid-induced hyperalgesia in this patient population will be reviewed, as will data suggesting that individual differences in pain sensitivity may predict the development of OUD. Regardless of underlying mechanisms, it is argued that complaints of pain from patients with OUD should be taken seriously and managed aggressively.
