Front Group American Pain Society Goes Belly Up

Saying it is beleaguered by legal debt fighting lawsuits alleging that its policies contributed to the nation’s opioid crisis, the American Pain Society has voted to cease operations and filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 7.

Numerous legal filings have accused the organization, along with other companies and associations, of acting as “front groups” for opioid drugmakers because many of them regularly contributed significant financial support to professional groups such as the APS.

It is the second pain-related association to cease operations in less than a year. (The Academy of Integrative Pain Management shut down in late January.)
