Continuing Education Event – Evidence based practices for treating stimulant disorders – Webinar – 6/25/2020
Abuse of stimulants like methamphetamine, cocaine, and even prescription drugs like Adderall and Ritalin is surging across the country, fed by cheap, potent, and plentiful supplies. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that overdose deaths have more than tripled for cocaine and quadrupled for methamphetamine since 2012. Current national and local data show dramatic increases in the number of first-time users of cocaine and meth, as well as a significant surge in availability, just as the availability of opioids has been decreasing. With this increasing need for evidenced based treatment this training will explore the current trends of stimulant use in the United States and discuss treatment options and explore the need for a call to action in mainstreaming clear guidelines on creating uniformed evidenced based practices.
Objectives: By the end of the training the learner will be able to :
• Provide an overview of the different stimulants
• Explore the physiology behind stimulant use
• Identify current trends on stimulant use in the United states
• Discuss treatment options being used today and understand the need for additional research on EBP
