People with substance use disorders can recover and thrive. This page is a resource for the community, people with a substance use disorder and their friends and family, and healthcare providers to learn more about treatment. The goal of the page is to provide education so more people can find the treatment that will work best for them.

To start, this page will focus on treatment for opioid use disorder. In the future we will have education and resources around other substance use disorders, including methamphetamine.

Check out our companion website, stopoverdose.org, focused on resources and education on overdose prevention and response.

For information on cannabis, visit learnaboutmarijuanawa.org.

Learnabouttreatment.org is operated by the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute at the University of Washington and funded by the WA State Health Care Authority, Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery. 

Thank you to our community partners who helped us develop this website.
