The Concept/Product

Vorvida® is a fully automated digital program developed by Orexo´s partner GAIA and is based on its proprietary artificial intelligence (AI)-expert system, broca®. Vorvida® is scientifically proven to reduce troublesome drinking patterns in adults.

Clinical Data

In a randomized controlled trial involving 608 adults with problematic alcohol intake, researchers found that participants in the intervention group with vorvida® significantly reduced their daily alcohol consumption over three and six months, with significant effect sizes.1 Additionally, in comparison to the control group, vorvida® users reported fewer days of binge drinking and drunkenness while stating high acceptance and utility rates of vorvida® at the same time.
