Rise of Methamphetamine: New Risks, Current Treatments
PLEASE NOTE: This webinar has been rescheduled from its original date and will now take place on Wednesday October 14 from 2:00 - 3:00pm ET.


Methamphetamine use has grown increasingly prevalent over the past couple decades, and fentanyl-contaminated methamphetamine has led to a significant increase in overdose deaths. Though no FDA-approved medications exist yet to treat methamphetamine use disorder, new research has demonstrated efficacy of various behavioral treatments, particularly contingency management. This webinar will provide an overview of the current state of methamphetamine use, considerations for concurrent opioid use, and strategies and interventions for treating and engaging individuals with stimulant use disorder.

Educational Objectives:
• Examine trends in and impacts of methamphetamine use, including concurrent use with opioids
• Identify clinical challenges and strategies for treating individuals who use stimulants
• Examine the evidence for medications and treatment interventions for stimulant use
