A company rich in history, yet poised for the future.
Indivior began with the goal of addressing the lack of treatment for the worldwide problem of addiction. In 1994, RB established the Buprenorphine Business Group, to which Indivior can trace its history of over 20 years. The buprenorphine Business Group focused on developing buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid dependence. Even though it was an area of business that was unproven, we believed we could make a measurable difference in the lives of patients all over the world. Through a grassroots effort, we’ve partnered with and educated governments, policy makers, payers, and healthcare professionals about diseases of addiction and the value of alternative treatment options (including office-based treatment). We’ve also worked diligently and strategically to identify and address the unmet treatment needs of patients.
We’re proud of our history but, more than that, we’re excited about our future.
