Mental Health Education Series: Types of treatment for Substance Use Disorders

I hope you checked out my first post in the Mental Health Education Series on Substance Use Disorders. This post provides education on types of treatment for substance use disorders and what those types of treatment mean. These are in order from most medically intensive to least medically intensive, and this is not meant to recommend a treatment plan, this is only meant to provide education on what each type of treatment means. Here it goes!

  • Medical detoxification

  • Ambulatory detoxification

  • Residential treatment

  • Partial Hospitalization

  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment

  • Monitoring

  • Individual Counseling
