Pain Medicine Study

Welcome to the Pain Medicine Study website.

The University of Auckland is conducting research about peoples’ experiences of becoming addicted to opioid pain medication. We want to interview people using certain types of pain medications – either prescribed by a doctor or purchased over-the-counter from pharmacies.

Here you will find information about the study we are conducting in Auckland, New Zealand, as well as some general information about pain medication addiction.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions relating to the study, or you are interested in participating in the study.
