Treatment and support

There are a number of ways to help people reduce or stop their drug use. Counselling can be a good way to help people that are using illicit drugs, and can include techniques like ref=23503:

  • brief intervention
  • motivational interviewing
  • general relapse prevention counselling.

There are also pharmacotherapies for people using opioids (such as prescription drugs or heroin) including opioid substitution treatment (OST) and naloxone. Please refer to the section on Pharmacotherapies in the Harm Reduction portal for further information on OST.
