Case Study
Opioid Dependence Treatment on MySpace.com

People ages 16-25 have experienced a drastic increase in opioid abuse, particularly prescription painkillers. The SUBOXONE® brand team at Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. wanted to educate this younger-aged audience about opioid dependence. MySpace was an ideal opportunity to share important information about this hidden epidemic. MySpace members got information about opioid addiction and how to find treatment. The campaign offers user-friendly information on:

  • The dangers of misusing opioids and the red flags that may help identify addiction
  • How recreational drug use can lead to addiction
  • An interactive addiction identifier questionnaire
  • Treatment options
  • A physician locator tool
  • Resources to find information and treatment
Qi helped Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. become the first pharmaceutical company to partner with MySpace and provide members with vital healthcare information. The conversion to branded information for SUBOXONE® has proved very successful.
