Addiction Professional, a multichannel brand serving the professional treatment and recovery community, announces the launch of a four-part series featuring two of Marvel’s most popular Super Heroes: Iron Man and Captain America. 

Vendome Group has partnered with Marvel Custom Solutions to create a mini series comic strip which debuts in the March/April issue of Addiction Professional.

Iron Man and Captain America will address the dangers of prescription drug misuse, a troubling lack of communication between patients and their doctors, and how a team of specialists can help patients manage pain while reducing the risk of addiction.

The next installments in this gripping series will appear in the May/June and July/August issues, with the conclusion presented at Addiction Professional’s National Conference on Addiction Disorders, September 28-October 2, in Orlando at the Gaylord Palms.

“We decided to engage Marvel to bring a creative approach to addressing this serious issue,” said Mark Fried, Executive Vice President of Vendome Group, publisher of Addiction Professional and producer of the National Conference on Addiction Disorders. “We are concluding the series at our national conference in Florida because this state has been particularly hard hit by this crisis.”

The first installment can be seen at (Enter “45” in the box at the bottom).
