introduction

The Founders of Addiction Cure Therapeutic Sciences are on a mission to end the world’s problem of addiction.

With abundant experience from a team of business professionals, doctors, scientists, researchers and addiction experts, combating and possibly curing the problem of addiction on multiple levels may be within reach.

ACT SCIENCES is a biotech firm advancing first in class therapeutics to potentially treat and cure the devastating disease of drug and alcohol addiction. Our mission is to discover life-changing treatments and cures that transform the lives of people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. The company is planning to develop Rx products designed to potentially provide long-term benefit or a functional cure for addiction.

ACTS’ scientists expect to receive the results of its pre-clinical testing on their first epigenetic compound, and are planning to test for target validation and dosage testing on 3 endocannabinoid compounds. ACTS is also pursuing a parallel path using compound drugs as a quicker-to-market strategy and test platform.

ADDICTION IS EXPENSIVE

According to the NCDAS, National Center for Drug Addiction Statistics, the Federal Government alone spent $34 billion on Drug Control in 2020. Additionally, it was estimated that drug abuse and addiction cost American society more than $740 billion annually in lost workplace productivity, healthcare expenses, and crime-related costs.

ADDICTION AFFECTS EVERYONE

The following numbers represent the number of addicts and annual deaths just in the U.S. alone:

ADDICTION IS ACCELERATING

That’s nearly 30 million addicts and over 180,000 deaths in the US per year – without taking into account deaths from smoking or fentanyl overdose. These numbers continue to grow and ACTS plans to reduce that number.

ACTS testing is a different path to a cure...

EPIGENETICS

Vulnerability to addiction emerges through approximately equal parts (50/50) of genetic predisposition and environmental risk, strongly suggesting an important role for epigenetic mechanisms. There is a growing body of research that has established epigenetic memory as the facilitator of pathogenic addictive behaviors. In order for a behavior pattern to become fixed, epigenetic bookmarks are erased, re-arranged and re-written to support the new behavior. These epigenetic marks fix the pathogenic gene expression program and facilitate higher-order structural changes in the brain.

Nearly all current treatments for substance abuse target the signaling chemicals neurons use to communicate. ACTS is on a different path; ACTS scientists are exploring the underlying epigenetic causes. In our search of 240 active pharmaceutical programs in the addiction space, we found nearly all were focused on molecules that directly alter brain-signaling molecules like dopamine and opiate receptors.

Our scientists and others in the field believe that chasing the “dopamine train” is not an answer to a cure; looking elsewhere may help lead us to a cure sooner.

ENDOCANNABINOIDS

There is a critical need to develop treatment strategies that may mitigate the abuse-related effects of stimulants such as methamphetamine. A growing body of literature suggests cannabinoid type 2 (CB2) receptor agonists may be able to modulate the reward pathway, thereby decreasing the reinforcing effects of drugs of abuse.

Furthermore, these agents may also have utility for healing the brains of individuals suffering from stimulant use disorder, improving cognitive function, protecting the dopamine system, and reducing brain inflammation in the methamphetamine exposed individual. As such, we are in the process of conducting early proof of concept research to assess novel CB2 receptor agonists.

success to date

  • Jack Levine, CEO, has written multiple books about addiction.
  • Established Board of Advisors, most bringing 20+ years experience.
  • Began creating an international social media presence.
  • Began testing our first Epigenetic Compound.
  • Starting initial target validation testing of Endocannabinoid Compound.
  • In negotiation with the Academic Research Lab to conduct further testing.
  • Began research collaboration with an FDA approved Compound Pharmacy Partner.

business model

ACTS envisions their main revenue stream as similar to other FDA approved prescription drug business models. We believe a physician will prescribe ACTS cure for addiction to their patient who will either pay for the prescription themselves, or through existing health insurance.

ACTS is seeking two quicker-to-market revenue streams; a possible compound drug version of the cure, and a nutraceutical line of supplements that help assist in the addiction withdrawal and recovery process.

"Marketdata estimates that the drug, alcohol and other addictions treatment industry will be worth $42 billion this year. Moderate but steady 5.2% annual growth in revenues is forecast through 2025, reaching $53 billion."
