Ask the Expert: What does addiction treatment involve?

In this Ask the Expert interview with one of our nation's experts on addiction psychiatry, we hear from Yale University's Brian Fuehrlein, M.D., Ph.D., about what treatment for addiction involves. Dr. Fuehrlein is an associate professor of psychiatry and director of the VA Psychiatric Emergency Room, Connecticut Healthcare System.

Dr. Fuehrlein shares: "For a substance use disorder, the most important thing would be that treatment needs to be individualized to the person. Treatment is a multimodal approach where not one size fits all for everybody, and treatment is a commitment to this over a longer period of time."
