Substance use disorder (SUD) can be treated in various ways depending on the severity of the condition, the substance of abuse, and individual factors. The most effective approach usually involves a combination of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and behavioral therapy. MAT uses medication to help manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings associated with drug use, while behavioral therapy addresses the underlying psychological and social factors that contribute to the addiction. Other approaches to treating SUD include individual counseling, group therapy, family therapy, and support groups. Treatment plans are typically tailored to the individual’s needs and progress is regularly monitored to ensure the best outcome.
