Tamper-resistant opioids will not solve opioid addiction problem, study suggests

Governments in Canada and the United States are promoting tamper-resistant drugs, which are more difficult to crush, snort or inject, to prevent addiction and other harms. Opioid users may tamper with prescribed tablets, capsules or patches for a faster «high.» However, a research group argues, tamper-resistant formulations of drugs will not solve the problems of opioid addiction and overdose.
