Note: Other psychological treatments may also be effective for mixed substance abuse/dependence, but they have not been evaluated with the same scientific rigor as the treatments above. Many medications may also be helpful for mixed substance abuse/dependence, but we do not cover medications in this website. Of course, we recommend a consultation with a mental health professional for an accurate diagnosis and discussion of various treatment options. When you meet with a professional, be sure to work together to establish clear treatment goals and to monitor progress toward those goals. Feel free to print this information and take it with you to discuss your treatment plan with your therapist.
