The Functional Recovery Program (FRP) is a nationally recognized, state-of-the-art pain rehabilitation program. Founded in 1989, the Functional Recovery Program is one of only two programs of its kind in Michigan and one of only 90 nationwide that has helped thousands take control of their pain, regain their pre-injury lifestyle and return to healthy, productive lives. FRP is directed under the leadership of Dr. Maury Ellenberg.


If you’re experiencing disabling chronic pain lasting more than three months even if you have undergone surgery, are requiring narcotic medication and other treatments, you may benefit from the comprehensive interdisciplinary treatment offered through the Functional Recovery Program.


FRP candidates must be 18 years of age or older and complete a three-step admission assessment, which includes an evaluation by the FRP medical director, a psychological screening with the FRP neuro-rehabilitation psychologist, and a pre-admission team conference to discuss treatment recommendations and individual interest in pursuing admission.
