The Mountain Plains and Pacific Southwest ATTCs are pleased to offer a two-part recording focused on recovery support services as it relates to People With Stimulant Use Disorders (PWSUDs). In both recordings, a review of the current research is highlighted along with people with lived experience in stimulant use and recovery discussing the findings and relating it to their own experiences. The three panelists with lived experience, all currently work at well-established recovery community organizations (RCOs), one in Colorado- Advocates for Recovery and one in Utah- Utah Support Advocates for Recovery Awareness.  In Part 1 recovery support (e.g. definition of recovery, recovery capital, recovery benchmarks, etc.) and stimulant use (e.g., prevalence of use, impact on the brain, and craving) is discussed. While the Part 2 recording is focused on treatment and recovery services (e.g., treatment services, barriers to recovery, managing triggers and return to use, cessation triggers, 12 Step involvement, exercise, and involvement with RCOs). The overall goal of this two-part recording is to provide participants with a review of the latest science regarding stimulants within the context of people with lived experience highlighting the lessons learned from their recovery. Finally, promoting hope, community, and engagement as central/essential pieces to recovery from stimulant use disorders is a theme in both recordings with the panelists reinforcing that recovery is achievable for PWSUDs.   Recovery Support with Stimulant Use Disorders Part 1   Recovery Support with Stimulant Use Disorders Part 2

Harm reduction is any action that reduces risk and increases personal and public safety. Harm reduction approaches have proven to prevent death, injury, disease, overdose, prevent substance misuse or disorder and most of us practice harm reduction techniques daily. For example, when we wear a seatbelt or apply sunscreen we are using harm reduction strategies.  Fentanyl strips, naloxone, and needle exchange programs are also examples of harm reduction.  This poster identifies some of the most common harm reduction methods in an attempt to normalize the term "harm reduction" and broaden the definition.   The Spanish translations were prepared by consultants for the Mountain Plains ATTC. While reasonable efforts are made to provide accurate translations, acknowledging the diversity of Spanish and English Language, some words/phrases may differ.   The poster can be downloaded in multiple formats directly from the MPATTC website. This product was designed for display as an 11x17 sized poster in a location most visible and accessible to behavioral health providers, educators, and/or peer recovery specialists but is also available in an 8.5x11 format for in-house printing. In addition, hard copies may be requested from the MPATTC by emailing us at [email protected] (posters can be mailed within the continental United States). Please click on the link below for more information.   To request an 11x17 "What is Harm Reduction?" poster to be mailed directly to you, please click "REQUEST A HARD COPY".

Fatal overdoses are skyrocketing, and rates of substance use remain high, demonstrating the need to expand substance use disorder (SUD) treatment. In 2020, fatal overdoses in the Central East increased 25% (from 9,909 to 12,377), with overdose rates above the national average in every state except Virginia. Rates of substance use and SUD are persistently elevated. Funding additional treatment services and expanding access to existing treatment can help address the problem. This factsheet provides statistics and justifications for increasing SUD treatment.

Contingency management provides monetary incentives (such as gift cards) for meeting treatment goals, including stimulant non-use as measured by negative urine drug tests (UDTs), rewarding individuals for changing their behaviors. Substance use offers a powerful, immediate reinforcement. Contingency management confronts this challenge by offering immediate financial awards that can help activate the brain’s reward system, thus encouraging the replacement of stimulants with the incentive to achieve a dopamine release. This course is a two-hour self-paced online training designed to provide a broad overview of contingency management for treating individuals with a stimulant use disorder (StimUD). The course includes a brief Introduction and seven (7) Modules. You can complete one Module at a time as your schedule permits. Completion of this course is required for individuals who are serving as a CM Coordinator, Back-Up CM Coordinator, or CM Supervisor within their agency.    Learning Objectives:  At the end of the course, participants will be able to:  1.    Recall at least three (3) patterns and trends regarding the scope of stimulant use in California and beyond. 2.    Identify at least three (3) acute and three (3) chronic effects of psychostimulant drugs on the brain. 3.    Specify at least three (3) key principles of operant conditioning. 4.    Formulate a list of the four (4) essential elements of an evidence-based, protocol-driven Recovery Incentives Program to address stimulant use.

When working with Hispanic and Latino populations, clear language should never be a linear process, particularly for a collectivist society that defines and interprets experiences within a cultural context. Latino values such as ‘machismo and personalismo’ can be very insightful, but when defined and understood through an American perspective, we wonder why we feel a ‘disconnect’ with the Hispanic client/patient we need to provide prevention services to. This interactive presentation will inform on Latino cultural nuances that can reframe communication for Hispanic individuals with substance use and/or mental health problems and discuss prevention strategies to support “recuperación” (recovery).

Presenter: Ann Marie Roepke, PhD December 2020 These are strange and frightening times. The global outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted daily life in profound ways. An economic recession, political strife, and the toxic impacts of racism weigh heavily on many. And those of us who work in the “helping professions” have the honor and the burden of caring for others in the midst of all these challenges. More than ever, we need the skills and the relationships that help us to be resilient: to make it through hard times with the least suffering and the greatest well-being possible. In this webinar, we will explore strategies for building up our resilience as we manage the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and associated challenges. Topics we will cover include reconnecting with values, meaning, and purpose; finding self-compassion during tough times; and maintaining motivation to take care of ourselves in the ways that work for us. Please note: This webinar is offered for educational and informational purposes only, and it not intended as a healthcare service, medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or establishment of a doctor/patient relationship.

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials. For more information about the importance of non-stigmatizing language, see “Destroying Addiction Stigma Once and For All: It’s Time” from the ATTC Network and “Changing Language to Change Care: Stigma and Substance Use Disorders” from the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS).
