The NIH HEAL (Helping to End Addiction Long-term) Initiative is an interdisciplinary program aimed at advancing addiction and pain research in the United States. The HEAL initiative will bolster research across NIH to improve treatments for opioid misuse and addiction and enhance pain management. The initial plans for the HEAL Initiative include support of research to understand how chronic pain develops as well as develop a data sharing collaborative, new biomarkers for pain, and a clinical trials network for testing new pain therapies.
