Stimulants 101 Training Series

This training is being sponsored by the Great Lakes ATTC for individuals working in HHS Region 5  (IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI). 



Stimulant use has increased over the past decade, and the COVID-19 pandemic has created additional challenges for providers who provide treatment for stimulant use disorder. In this virtual series, participants will learn how stimulants affect the brain, body, and behavior. Presenters will discuss the impact of stimulant use in urban and rural communities and will also provide an overview of evidence-based approaches to stimulant treatment and recovery.



Participants will learn:

  • How stimulants affect the body and the brain
  • Evidence-based approaches to stimulant use disorder treatment and recovery: The Matrix Model, Motivational Interviewing, Contingency Management and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
