(Good Things Utah) As our state continues to deal with the ever-growing opioid crisis, many are beginning to question when a safer alternative will be found. This is a question medical experts have been asking for years, with no solid answers thus far.

One of the names leading the pack in that effort is JBR Clinical Research Centers.

Serving the community for over 30 years now, their teams have prided themselves on prioritizing each patient’s well-being above all else. There are roughly 2,500 institutions worldwide that have accredited their commitment and quality, with over 9,000 JBR facilities (and counting) in the United States alone.

“We do all different kinds of clinical research, but our main focus — what we’re most known for — is helping develop new pain medicines… There’s a race on to develop a new, effective, safer medication for pain and that’s what we focus on.”

Dr. Todd Bertoch, Chief Medical Officer with JBR Clinical Research

JBR has had much success during its efforts; monetarily compensating any participants that are willing to take part in their cutting-edge research/procedures — performed by some of the world’s most talented doctors.

Regulated by the FDA, their trials are held to the highest standards; being required to follow extra rules and guidelines throughout their practice.
