Effective Medicines with Optimized Delivery Solutions

Opiant takes several approaches to treating addictions and drug overdose, with the goal of using the optimal pathway for drug delivery. Although we’ve demonstrated our core competency in intranasal delivery with NARCAN® Nasal Spray and have expanded that usage to our clinical pipeline in overdose and addiction, we are exploiting more effective delivery options for our preclinical programs and their respective indications.

  • Nasal Sprays – single-use for overdose and ‘as-needed/on-demand’ for Alcohol Use Disorder
  • Injection – a vaccine for heroin and single-use for Acute Cannabinoid Overdose
  • Implant – lasting up to 6 months for Opioid Use Disorder
