Women and Stimulant Use: Healthy Steps to Freedom

This session is the 2nd in the Women and Stimulant Use Project ECHO Series. The 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. 

Women and Stimulant Use: Healthy Steps to Freedom, will address core issues that are unique to female SUD treatment clients in comparison to their male counterparts regarding weight and energy as a driving mechanism to use, triggers for relapse, trends in drug use for women and the complexity of health-related complications and psychosocial needs, prescription medication and over-the-counter drug manipulation.
