“Avantcare and its founders have spent countless hours and millions of dollars over the last two decades developing Avantcare’s cutting edge addiction cessation products for alcohol, smoking, and prescription drugs,” said Frank Gibson, Avantcare’s CEO. “We have invested heavily and taken countless steps to ensure our products are safe, reliable, and effective. Avantcare’s goal is to help as many people as possible overcome addiction and the overuse of alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs by providing a natural way to curb cravings and minimize symptoms of withdrawal.”
“At Avantcare, we think competition is healthy, and we support those who innovate and strive to help others in their fight against alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs. We will not, however, allow others to profit from the valuable proprietary formulas, manufacturing methods, and consumer goodwill we have spent as much as twenty years building. We actively and aggressively protect our intellectual property and enforce our rights. That is what we are doing in this case.”
