Training Overview Description

Overdose deaths associated with illicit stimulants (cocaine and methamphetamine) have surged in the past eight years, according to a recent study by the National Institutes for Health (NIH). While there are currently no FDA-approved medications for the treatment of individuals who are dependent upon methamphetamine, new treatments utilizing readily available medications are showing encouraging empirical support.
