Our Focus

Mission Possible

This is where it all starts.

Braeburn makes it possible for independent minds, trailblazers, and innovators to work together in a unique environment that encourages innovation and discovery. We believe this is the difference that makes a difference.

Perhaps it’s the promise that our vision can actually be attained. Not through politics or committees, but through mutual understanding, drive, and purpose.

Every day, we’re reevaluating and rethinking a new way forward… to redefine treatment for a vastly under served patient population. The promise that our vision can be attained through mutual understanding, drive, and purpose.

Braeburn makes it possible for independent minds, trailblazers, and innovators to work together…

Braeburn is thinking beyond what’s been done. And thinking about what can be done…what is possible.

Possible starts here.

About Opioid Dependence

Opioid use disorder is a chronic brain disease and one of the fastest growing public health epidemics in America. In the U.S., 2.5 million people struggle with opioid addiction and, according to the Centers for Disease Control, over 78 people die each day from the disease. There is a growing body of evidence that opioid addiction is not a choice or a moral failing, but the result of genetic predisposition combined with environmental factors. Nonetheless, individuals struggling with this disease continue to be stigmatized. Research has also shown that opioid use disorder is best treated with a combination of medication and psychosocial support. The majority of individuals with opioid addiction cannot sustain recovery without long-term outpatient medical treatment.

About Pain

Pain management is one of the most difficult clinical challenges worldwide in medicine today, with limited treatment options for the management of chronic pain. Although opioids have an essential role in pain management, clinicians still struggle to provide adequate relief from pain yet minimize the potential for misuse, diversion, abuse, and addiction. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), 116 million people suffer from chronic pain in the U.S. It is estimated that 44 million are being treated with opioids for moderate or severe pain.

About Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a disease characterized by a distortion in the process of thinking and of emotional responsiveness. It most commonly manifests as hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking, and is accompanied by significant social or occupational dysfunction. Onset of symptoms typically occurs in young adulthood and the condition is chronic, often requiring life-long treatment to mitigate symptoms. It has been estimated that schizophrenia affects approximately 1% of the adult population in the U.S., and approximately 24 million people worldwide. In the U.S., there are approximately 2.4 million adults with schizophrenia, prevalent equally in both genders. While there is no cure for the disease, symptoms and risk of relapse — the re-emergence or worsening of psychotic symptoms — can be managed in most patients with appropriate antipsychotic treatment.

About Spasticity

Spasticity is a condition in which certain muscles are continuously contracted. This contraction causes stiffness or tightness of the muscles and can interfere with normal movement, speech, and gait. Spasticity is usually caused by damage to the portion of the brain or spinal cord that controls voluntary movement. The damage causes a change in the balance of signals between the nervous system and the muscles. This imbalance leads to increased activity in the muscles. Spasticity affects more than an estimated 12 million people worldwide. This includes people with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
