Substance use is a major concern in many parts of the world. It affects people across all strata and classes. This study uses a qualitative case study approach to gain an in-depth understanding of the needs of patients with substance use disorder (SUD) and to synthesise the outcome from each of the cases. Five cases of inpatients admitted with diagnosis of SUD in a tertiary mental healthcare institute were selected through purposive sampling technique, and data were collected through observations, interviews and documents. Participants were the patients and their caregiver. Individual cases were analysed and their needs were identified in categories and finally the identified common needs were organised into broader themes. The themes that emerged were grouped into biological, physical health, social, familial, disease-related and psychological needs. These findings can be put to use to give effective care to patients with SUD and further interventions can be designed with these specific aspects in mind.
