CEU Course Description
Research presented by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) suggests that the prevalence of stimulant use disorder is on the rise, and becoming a public health crisis similar to the opioid epidemic. Therefore, health care professionals should possess insight into stimulant use disorder to effectively treat patients in need. This course reviews SAMHSA's evidence-based resource guide centered around treatment considerations for stimulant use disorder to provide health care professionals with the necessary insight to optimize patient care.
