The treatment of substance use disorders is rapidly changing and the potential to identify and treat individuals suffering from addiction continues to increase. Advances in brain imaging technology and genetics have expanded our understanding of the neurobiology of addiction. New behavioral psychotherapies, as well as novel delivery mechanisms, are changing the nature of standard treatment approaches. Pharmacotherapy options continue to expand in terms of number of effective medications identified as well as treatment delivery models. pdf PIIS0193953X12000329.pdf
