Are narcotic pain contracts legal and when a patient refuses to agree can a physician stop established narcotic pain management therapy knowing it will has caused harm to the patient?

Opiate agreement contracts are not typically legal contracts. They are a means to establish boundaries between you and your physician. Depending upon the state, your physician may dismiss you for no reason. Opiate withdrawal is not always harmful. Typically a trained qualified pain physician will try to wean you from opiate medications depending upon how egregious the opiate violation may have been. If the physician cannot get good information from the patient on current medication ingestion, this can be difficult. Of course death from opiate overdose is always more harmful than surviving withdrawal.
