Indivior is a specialty pharmaceuticals business. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange.


The company was established as the Buprenorphine division of Reckitt Benckiser in 1994.[2] In December 2014, Reckitt Benckiser spun off its specialty pharmaceuticals business into a separate company named Indivior.[3] By February 2015 the company was capitalised at £2.3 billion on the London Stock Exchange.[4]

In 2019, Indivior was indicted over claims that it had made false marketing claims about the effectiveness of its drug, Suboxone, and had concocted a scheme to direct patients towards doctors who were likely to prescribe Suboxone. Reckitt Benckiser has settled with justice department to pay $1.4 billion to resolve U.S. federal investigation into sales and marketing of opioid addiction treatment.[5][6][7]


The company's main products are Subutex and its Naloxone-combined preparation Suboxone, both substitution products for opioid addiction.[2] Other products include remedies for cocaine and opioid analgesic overdose and treatment for alcohol dependence: the company claims this to be the largest pipeline of addiction drugs in the world.[8]
