Abstract

Substance use disorders (SUDs) pose a major public health concern. In recent years, technological (i.e., e-health) interventions have emerged and are increasingly offered in a variety of settings, including substance use treatment. E-health interventions encompass a wide variety of advantages depending on the chosen delivery format. This chapter discusses existing interventions and the effectiveness of delivering them as an e-health intervention, with a focus on randomized controlled trials, for the treatment of alcohol, cannabis, opioid, psychostimulant, or poly-substance use, as well as in transdiagnostic interventions. Based on the literature, suggestions for future research and clinical implications are discussed.
