Stimulant Use: Current Trends and the Impact on the User's Brain and Body

This is the first session in the Women & Stimulant Project ECHO Series. This series will utilize a Project ECHO format to provide case-based learning and consultation for substance use and other health care providers working with women who use stimulants. Using the Zoom videoconferencing platform, providers will be able to connect directly with leading experts in the field to build their capacity to provide evidence-based care. Each 90-minute session will include a brief didactic presentation and an interactive discussion on two de-identified client cases. 

Stimulant Use: Current Trends and the Impact on the User's Brain and Body will describe the local and national scope of stimulants (cocaine and methamphetamine). The mental health and physical health consequences of stimulant use will be presented, including information on the impact of stimulant use on the brain and cognition.


  1. Describe the patterns and trends of stimulant use, both locally and nationally.
  2. Describe the mechanism of action of methamphetamine and cocaine.
  3. List at least three short-term and three long-term effects of stimulant use.
