As many communities focus on the current opioid crisis, we have seen an alarming rise in people using cocaine, methamphetamines and designer stimulants like “Bath Salts.”
The misuse of these chemicals, including a surge in the use of stimulants among people being treated for opioid use disorder, has largely gone unnoticed. And yes, people die every day from mis-using stimulants, whether it’s sharing another person’s prescription or using methamphetamine.
Stimulants are everywhere, in energy drinks, prescription medications and illicit chemicals. Because of their prevalence, clinicians need to be equipped to recognize stimulant misuse and effectively intervene with their clients.
All mental health clinicians, not just those working in substance use treatment, need to be aware of stimulant misuse, the various chemicals mis-used and ways to treat these clients.
Paul Brasler has over 22 years of experience in working with adolescents and adults who misuse stimulants and other chemicals.
Watch Paul as he helps you better understand clients who misuse stimulants and the ways you can confidently help your clients.
