The world of addiction treatment has much of its own language, with plenty of acronyms and catch phrases.

To help get consumers and clinicians on the same page, the Butler Center for Research has created a series of informational summaries describing:

  • Evidence-based addiction treatment modalities
  • Distinctive levels of substance use disorder treatment
  • Specialized drug and alcohol treatment programs

Each summary includes:

  • A definition of the therapeutic approach, level of care or specialized program
  • A discussion of applicability, usage and practice
  • A description of outcomes and efficacy
  • Research citations and related resources for more information

Harnessing science, love and the wisdom of lived experience, we are a force of healing and hope ​​​​​​​for families and communities affected by substance use and mental health conditions.
