There are numerous stimulants such as crystal methamphetamine, cocaine and MDMA that are widely used and are highly addictive. The goal of this training is to provide medical providers with a overview of the difficulties they may encounter when treating stimulant use disorders. This training is also focused on presenting treatment modalities, both pharmacological and non-pharmacological, that have been effective in the treatment of stimulant use disorder.
