Pharmacological management is an important pillar in the treatment of substance use disorders. Decades back, researchers were struggling to find specific pharmacological agents for management of different substance use disorders. However, in the past two decades many effective pharmacological interventions have been discovered, approved, and recommended by several international management guidelines. In recent years, many novel pharmacological agents have been introduced or are in different phases of trial. This review focuses on the current understanding about different pharmacotherapeutic options and recent advances in the management of substance use disorders.
