Discussion—Integrating Pharmacotherapy in Treatment

While numerous psychotherapeutic methods for treating substance abuse are available, some patients also utilize pharmacotherapy to assist them in their recovery.

  • What are the costs and benefits of combining pharmacotherapy with psychotherapy in the treatment of substance use disorders? 
  • How does abstinence apply to those users who are taking replacement therapy such as methadone maintenance or nicotine replacement treatments? 
  • What counseling theories will work best alongside pharmacotherapies for substance use disorders?
