Share Article

Mediaplanet today announces distribution of its “Medication Addiction,” campaign, which will focus on the growing national epidemic of prescription painkiller and subsequent heroin addictions and abuse.

The campaign focuses on a number of topics within the industry, and calls for swift policy and advocacy measures to enact change. Editorial features include a focus on the invaluable life-saving force of naloxone, the importance of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) in recovery, the link between opioid diversion and heroin addiction and the co-existing mental disorders that often accompany medication addictions.

Medication Addiction is a print and online campaign, distributed within this weekend’s edition of USA Today in New York, Chicago, LA and Boston, with a circulation of approximately 250,000 copies and an estimated readership of 750,000. The print component will also be featured at the upcoming American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry Annual Meeting from December 3-6 of this year. The campaign will be disseminated in all of the attendee bags at this conference.

The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy, and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.

The digital homepage and cover of the print publication features Sylvia Burwell, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In an exclusive interview, Secretary Burwell discusses why she has made the opioid epidemic a top priority of her time in office. The Secretary also discusses the vital importance of Medication-Assisted Treatment for opioid and heroin addicts, and gives advice about how the general public can help to reverse this unsettling trend.
