Webinar Description: Methamphetamine use has grown increasingly prevalent over the past couple decades, and fentanyl-contaminated methamphetamine has led to a significant increase in overdose deaths.

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
