Date:11/27/2012

WASHINGTON, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At today's National Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Policy Consensus Meeting, the not-for-profit Center for Lawful Access and Abuse Deterrence (CLAAD) announced the results of its national contest to identify the "Top 5 Technologies To Reduce Prescription Drug Abuse." 

In alphabetical order, the Top 5 honorees are …

  • Atlantic Pharmaceuticals' SMART/Script dosage form to decrease medication tampering;
  • Eagle Advancement Institute's Clarity program for opioid detoxification, addiction treatment, and aftercare;
  • Egalet's erosion-based drug delivery platform, designed to resist tampering;
  • The Locking Cap, a combination bottle cap to prevent unauthorized access to prescription medications, particularly by children and teens; and
  • Pisgah Labs' P2P Interventions process, designed to safeguard medications' active ingredients.

Honorable mention goes to Abuse Tech's Abuse-Loc, a locking medication bottle to prevent the diversion of drugs from homes.

The Top 5 Technologies competition aims to increase public awareness of the U.S. prescription drug abuse epidemic, and to support private-sector efforts to address the problem.

Michael Barnes, spokesman for CLAAD, stated, "These companies have demonstrated a sincere commitment to reducing prescription drug abuse. We hope the Top 5 Technologies recognition will expedite their success in meeting that goal."

San Diego-based Millennium Laboratories co-sponsored the Top 5 Technologies contest. Millennium provides
