Dangerously addictive, meth is a drug that ends lives. It’s literally a substance so volatile it puts holes in the human brain.

But it harms those far beyond the nearly half-million Americans that use meth each week. Families are neglected, children are exposed, and the prison system is overrun. It’s everyone’s problem.

As the tentacles of this sinister epidemic spread into our communities, you need to be prepared to address issues related to methamphetamine and other stimulant drug use in your clients’ who use and in your clients’ who have a drug user in their lives!

Whether you’re an addictions professional, social worker, counselor, psychologist or nurse, this recording will give you the critical information you need to:

  • Understand the impact of co-occurring disorders with meth use on treatment outcomes
  • Work more effectively with clients that struggle with a dependency on meth
  • Be prepared for future trends and next steps in dealing with the meth epidemic

Make sure that you can be part of the solution to one of the scariest epidemics facing our communities today!
