Stimulants 101 Training Series


The ORN in conjunction with the ATTC Network proudly presents a four part core curriculum training series.

The first three sessions of the package provide information about central nervous system stimulants and their impact on brain, body, and behavior. Prepared by members of the Addiction Technology Transfer Center Network, Stimulant Workgroup, the training covers (1) the scope of stimulant use in the United States and beyond; (2) stimulants and the brain and impact of use on cognition; (3) stimulant use and psychosis; (4) short- and long-term physical and mental health consequences of stimulant use and considerations for specific populations; (5) the intersection of stimulant use and HIV risk; and (6) effective evidence-based behavioral treatment interventions and recovery supports for people with a stimulant use disorder.

The fourth session focuses on Polysubstance.

At the end of the polysubstance among stimulant users module, participants will be able to (1) distinguish aspects of stimulant use that occurs alone vs. that which occurs with co-use of other substances; (2) recognize patterns of use, risk factors, and clinical challenges faced by individuals who co-use stimulants and other substances, specifically alcohol and opioids; and (3) Understand the available evidence-based treatment options for individuals with co-occurring stimulant and other substance use disorders
