It was revised in 2015 and a new book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain, was written to accompany the program.

The program is for anyone primary or secondary diagnosis of chronic pain, lasting longer than 3-6 months, and is intended as a supplement to doctor prescribed treatment and programs.
