We are a volunteer group working to raise awareness about the prevalence and impact of chronic pain. 

We maintain support groups throughout our region, run awareness campaigns, display street banners and organize informative events during National Pain Awareness Week, and frequently reach out to politicians, doctors, educators and other key "influencers". We have compiled facts, resources, a news  letter and other information in this website. We hope you find it helpful.

We strive to support patients and to advocate for improved and equal access to pharmaceuticals and treatment on behalf of all chronic pain sufferers in Atlantic Canada regardless of financial status. Our vision is to make chronic pain a key health issue that is no longer invisible.

 Action Atlantic is proud to be working in partnership with the Chronic Pain Association Of Canada, a national registered charity.    


Have you checked your medicine box for unwanted, unused or expired medications?

Action Atlantic is promoting the return of any unused or outdated prescription medications, over the counter products, and supplements, to any local pharmacy in your community.  These should not be thrown in the garbage or flushed, but properly disposed of. Please check your medicine boxes for any outdated or unwanted medications and ensure you do a drop off on your next visit to your local pharmacy.
