A Quick Guide to Substance Use Treatment

Addiction can be incredibly difficult to escape, but this Psych Hub video provides a handy, accessible overview of the many options for getting help for yourself or a loved one

July 28, 2022

Drug or alcohol addiction is a heavy burden, but it is by no means a hopeless situation. Whether you or a loved one is seeking help with a substance use disorder, there are many ways to start the journey to recovery.

This video from Psych Hub gives a very informative 4-minute overview of how to begin and continue treatment. Some scenarios may require emergency care, some patients may need inpatient or outpatient treatment, and some people may be aided by medication-assisted treatment. Some may find therapy techniques especially valuable, some may decide to attend support group meetings, and many will thrive with the community and healthy routines of long-term recovery. If you’re not sure where to start, this video covers all of that and more.
