About Us

Of the 25 million veterans living in the U.S.A., millions endure chronic pain. Some of us on the ACPA team are veterans with chronic pain, too, and not long ago we realized that vets like you and ourselves need a place that can help others understand the issues we face daily.

So we developed this password-protected site, just for veterans, active-duty personnel, and families who deal with pain every day. To sign up, click here or call 800-533-3231. We look forward to meeting you, and to becoming part of your support system.


To assist U.S. veterans who live with pain.

As a project of the American Chronic Pain Association, we recognize the specific needs of U.S. veterans and military personnel.

In response, the VIP program provides education in pain management and a selection of other veteran-oriented resources, including online access to ACPA peer support groups.

Our virtual peer support groups are intended for veterans with transportation issues. Remember that virtual meetings are not a substitute for face-to-face peer support group meetings.


To facilitate peer support and education for individuals with chronic pain and their families, so that these individuals may live more fully in spite of their pain.

To raise awareness among the health care community, policy makers, and the public at large about issues of living with chronic pain.
