Our addiction science effort focuses on finding new non-opioid, non-addictive drugs for pain management and preventing opioid addiction altogether.
Therefore, we fund organizations and scientists with acute and chronic non-opioid, non-addictive pain management and related solutions.
Below is an illustration of our medical pipeline.

Opioid addiction, often referred to as opioid use disorder (OUD), is characterized by the compulsive use of opioids, despite negative consequences. Here are some key aspects of the science of opioid addiction:
