Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I'm not sure why taking prescription pain medication should be a hindrance for alcohol detox, unless you have been prescribed opiod
pain relievers. If you are in a lot of pain, you can be prescribed non-opiod pain relievers which can safely be taken along with your detox medication.
The other issue to be considered is that if you have stopped alcohol abruptly, then you may experience withdrawal symptoms
which can sometimes be even dangerous. So, I would suggest that you discuss regarding the possibility undergoing detox while taking appropriate medication for the pain.
Wish you all the best.
