Digital Therapeutics for Substance Use Disorders: From Research to Practice – Psychiatric Times

Read article - A commentary by Cornel Stanciu, assistant professor of psychiatry, examines digital therapeutics (DTx), products that deliver evidence-based therapeutic interventions to prevent, manage, or treat a condition and how such products can best be leveraged for patients. “DTx are installed on the patient’s smartphone or tablet and allow the patient to learn about their disease, enter real-time data, and experience patient-facing interventions,” said Stanciu. “As clinicians, we need to be aware of the available DTx and how to best leverage them for the benefit of our patients.”
