Fighting The Opioid Epidemic: How Grünenthal’s Abuse-Deterrent Technology Contributes

While the wider use of opioids has led to many benefits for patients in pain, it also has led to higher incidences of misuse, abuse, and development of opioid addiction. To address this issue without preventing legitimate patients from receiving their necessary medication, Grünenthal set out to create an abuse-deterrent formulation with a technology that creates a physico-chemical barrier to abuse and, as a result, safeguards patients from the battle of addiction.
