Behavioral Treatment: Individual, group, or family therapy, in a residential, inpatient, outpatient, or community setting.
Medications: FDA-approved medications for OUD include buprenorphine (Subutex®, Sublocade®, Suboxone®), methadone, and naltrexone (Vivitrol®). Medications for alcohol use disorder include acamprosate, disulfiram (Antabuse®), and naltrexone (Vivitrol). Some of these medications work by reducing cravings, while others block the mind-altering effects of the substance.
Recovery Supports: People can sustain their recovery by maintaining good overall health, participating in meaningful activities such as community involvement, work, and social engagement, and getting support from groups like AA/NA, family, and friends.
