Stimulant use is on the rise and includes prescription medications such as Adderall and Ritalin, as well as drugs such as cocaine, methamphetamine, and ecstasy/MDMA. Though stimulants are not as prevalent as other substances, like opioids, stimulant use disorder presents with its own unique set of needs and responds to different treatment and recovery modalities.
C4 Innovations, an Opioid Response Network (ORN) partner organization, will host a conversation about stimulant use and promising approaches to recovery support. Our presenters will give an overview of stimulants and will describe data and demographics on misuse, behavioral and psychosocial interventions for treatment, and promising recovery supports that promote long term recovery.
