PRESENTATION:  In addition to the significant issue with opioids that is present in the United States,  synthetics drugs, for a variety of reasons, are also becoming an epidemic in the United States.  Many clinicians and clients are unaware of their use because they can be sold under traditional trade names that disguise their origin.  This course will provide an overview of the traditional drugs categories and focus upon the current emerging trends in each.  Special attention will be given to the composition, effects and ramifications of using these new chemical derivatives.  Issues of particular interest will include availability, economic accessibility, legal issues, and current trends that promote their use.  Participants will be able to describe basic composition of the most prevalent emerging trends, define the major effects of each of these substances, and describe the dynamics that create the demand for these drugs.
