The 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that over 1.2 million individuals had a diagnosable cocaine or methamphetamine use disorder, with another 540,000 meeting criteria for a stimulant use disorder for prescribed stimulants. Deaths caused by cocaine are climbing at alarming rates in Florida, nearly doubling from 2015 to 2016. This seminar will help participants recognize the impact of stimulant use disorders, as well as increase their capacity to support individuals in their recovery through evidence-supported treatment and health promotion strategies.
