Impact of COVID-19 on Addiction Treatment Market

Hence, companies in the addiction treatment market are capitalizing on the demand for drugs and are increasing their production capabilities. However, many manufacturing units have been temporarily shut down which has led to supply shocks in most hospitals and retail pharmacies. Addiction treatment medications are deemed essential goods and hence governments are relaxing lockdown regulations to resume manufacturing in production units.
Individuals with opioid use disorder and methamphetamine use disorder are most vulnerable to acquire the Coronavirus infection since their pulmonary and respiratory systems are potentially weak. Though e-cigarettes reduce exposure to harmful combustion, the aerosols and nicotine in these cigarettes cause harm to human health, resulting in increased demand for addiction treatment medicines.
