AbstractThe aim of this study was to examine the association of pain catastrophizing and pain coping strategies with characteristic pain intensity (an average of worst, least, and typical pain intensity in the past week) and recent pain-related disability (an average of three measures of past week pain interference) in opioid-dependent patients enrolled in a methadone maintenance treatment program (MMTP) who reported recent pain.
