The Epidemic

Opioid Epidemic

Doctors write over 150 million opioid prescriptions annually to 50 million Americans.

 

10 million people misuse opioids and over 2 million people are addicted leading to over 60,000 deaths each year, more than from car accidents. Most attempts to combat the problem have focused on treating those already addicted.

 

The Addinex team is focused on preventing opioid misuse, addiction, and overdose, and treating those with Opioid Use Disorder.

Key Drivers

Clinical studies have demonstrated that opioid misuse and addiction are driven by three key drivers.

 

The Addinex system is designed to help clinicians and patients to counter each of

these key drivers with the goal of stopping the epidemic in its tracks.

Over-Prescription

Up to 92% of patients have unused pills after surgery according to a study by Johns Hopkins University.

 

The American Journal of Law and Medicine states that there is a "paucity of trustworthy, current data" in prescribing opioids.

Lack of Disposal

The JHU study found that more than 90% of patients fail to properly dispose of leftover pills leading to over 3 billion opioids annually retained or diverted. 50% of illicitly used pills come from one's own or a friend's medicine cabinet.

Prolonged Use

Risk of addiction increases with initial time of use. A University of Michigan study found that one in 16 users of opioids become chronic users after just one dose and the risk of prolonged use increases dramatically after 4-5 days. You have a one in five chance of still being on the drug after one year if you take an opioid for just 10 days.

Our Solution

Addinex has developed a low-cost, patented opioid dispensing system to prevent addiction and overdose with:

  • password-protected dosage access,

  • real-time patient education,

  • excess pill destruction, and

  • data feedback on actual usage patterns.

 

Like the proven efficacy of seatbelts in cars and helmets for motorcyclists, our device adds a

level of protection for users of a useful, but potentially dangerous product.

Password-Protected Dosing

Each dose requires a unique passcode that matches only the patient with the device. Passcodes are only released to the actual user and on the prescription's schedule.

Lock-Out Feature

The Addinex dispenser does not allow a patient to access the next pill until the minimum time interval has passed based on the prescription. For example, one pill 2-4 times per day allows one pill every six hours

Easy to Use App

All passcodes must be requested through our digital database via our mobile app, web app, text, or call-in service (coming soon). The request process is quick and easy.

Low-Cost

The Addinex dispenser has no electronics making it very cost effective. All of the patient specific features of the system are accessed via the related App or other methods.

Who Benefits

Addinex's patented device and integrated system offer the following unique benefits to

patients, doctors, insurance companies, pharmacies, and society.

Addiction Cost Savings

According to the U.S. Council of Economic Advisers, medical insurers spend over $65 billion annually on opioid addiction. Greater control over initial opioid usage and elimination of access to excess drugs will result in significant savings to the bottom line.

Reimbursement Savings

Doctors write over 150 million opioid prescriptions with 3.3 billion excess pills being retained annually. Since our data can help doctors avoid over-prescribing, insurance companies can save billions of dollars from lower prescribing levels and less diversion of pills for illicit use.

How It Works

Step 1 : See Your Doctor

For patients who are prescribed opioids for post-surgical pain, your doctor or insurance company may recommend or require the use of the Addinex system to manage your at-home opioid use. Your doctor will determine your specific pain medication, dosage, and duration.

Step 2 : Pharmacist

The pharmacist will fill your prescription using the Addinex system and provide you with both the pill dispenser and a pre-paid disposal mailer.

Step 2 : Addinex App

Simply enter the Addinex dispenser ID and personal ID to gain access to your unique device passcode. Answer a few simple anonymous questions to help Addinex provide you with personalized feedback on usage and pain monitoring.

Step 4 : Dispense Your Pills

Enter the unique passcode obtained from the app for each dose, but no more often than the doctor prescribed. Repeat until pain subsides.

Step 5 : Get Educated

Addinex will provide you with valuable information (e.g., possible side-effects, addiction statistics, etc.) each time you take a dose. We'll monitor your pain levels and suggest consideration of over-the-counter medications as the pain subsides. We'll also warn you when you've been taking more pills than is typical for similar patients.

Step 6 : Return Device

Once your pain subsides, it's time to return the device. To avoid the risk of access to pills by unauthorized users and to keep yourself safe from using the pills in the future without a doctor's oversight, we require that the Addinex dispenser be returned for disposal in our easy-to-use pre-paid mailer which can be deposited into any mailbox. Addinex will alert doctors if patients fail to return the device which could compromise access to future prescriptions.
