What is OxyNEO?

New uncrushable Oxycontin in Canada, that's all I know. Is it the new oxy for here in the states as well?

With dramatic increases in illegitimate pain clinics ("pill mills") and patient "doctor shopping" in recent years, the rate of prescription painkiller abuse skyrocketed. Purdue Pharma's Oxycontin, an opiate prescribed for chronic pain management, has become the center of attention for its significant effect on nationwide increases in prescription-drug abuse. Alternatives to Oxycontin are now being created to offset painkiller abuse.
