The Rising Tide of Stimulants

Tuesday, September 28, 2021

Bucks County Drug & Alcohol Commission, Inc. and Be Part of the Conversation will host a discussion on the current trends surrounding stimulant/psychostimulant use and the co-occurrence of opioid use.

Our panel of presenters will discuss the current trends surrounding stimulant/psychostimulant use and the co-occurrence of opioid use. We’ll address related risk factors and warning signs, focusing on populations that are particularly at risk.

We will explore the trajectory of initiation via prescribed stimulants (such as Adderall, Dexedrine, Concerta) and their misuse, as well as the use of illicit stimulants, including cocaine, crack cocaine, crystal meth and some club drugs. Combined use with opioids, whether prescribed or illicit, increases risks for addiction and overdose.

Treatment options and support for families is vital to shifting this rising tide.
