Finding Quality Treatment for Substance Use Disorders

This one-page fact sheet from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) guides users in identifying treatment services options in their community, whether they have health insurance or not. It lists the five signs of quality treatment and how users should evaluate each in a provider: accreditation, medication, evidence-based practices, families, and supports. Practitioners may also be interested in SAMHSA’s brochure Should You Talk to Someone About a Drug, Alcohol, or Mental Health Problem? which can be ordered for free, and their Toolkit for National Prevention Week 2018 with information about planning and hosting a mental health awareness event.
