Following Up on past presentations of “The Rising Tide of Stimulants”
Our presenters discuss the current trends surrounding stimulant/psychostimulant use. We address related risk factors and warning signs, focusing on populations that are particularly at risk. We also explore the trajectory of initiation use via prescribed stimulants (such as Adderall, Dexedrine, Concerta) and their misuse, as well as the use of illicit stimulants, including cocaine, crack cocaine, crystal meth and some club drugs.
Below you will find information about our past presenters, along with related Powerpoints and supportive information and resources.
