PRESENTATIONMethamphetamine and cocaine use rates and overdose deaths are rapidly increasing in much of the US.  Use of these drugs produce severe damage to the body and the brain.  It is important for clinicians to be aware of how the unique effects of stimulants influence the treatment needs of people in treatment.    The presentation will review the clinical challenges presented by individuals who use stimulants and current protocols for addressing acute medical/psychiatric conditions. As a result of this training, participants will be able to: 

  • Explain the current epidemiology of cocaine and methamphetamine in the US;
  • Describe the most common clinical challenges in treatment people with stimulant use disorder; and
  • Review and discuss the current evidence-based practices for the treatment of individuals with stimulant use disorder.
