We also look forward to discussing BICX102, our naltrexone implant in which we are seeking FDA approval and NIDA funding.”
September is National Recovery Month. Each September, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) asks the nation to observe National Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders. In honor of National Recovery Month, BioCorRx would like to again share the story of Jordan’s recovery. Jordan has been in recovery for 18 months and this is his story- https://www.10tv.com/article/hi-tech-treatment-now-possible-opiate-addiction. It’s important to celebrate and honor these individuals who continue their journey of recovery from substance use disorder and those who provide treatment and recovery services. Collectively, we can help to strengthen families and communities by raising awareness to those outside of the recovery community so that they can better understand the strength, courage and hard work required in addiction recovery.
