Announcing A New Tribal/Urban Indian Provider On-Demand Learning Course

This on-demand course will describe the local and national scope of stimulant use, including current trends in use amongst Indigenous people in CA and nationally. The mental health and physical health consequences of stimulant use will be presented, including information on stimulant use and its impact on the brain, psychosis, and cognition. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of how to implement effective behavioral treatment interventions with people who use stimulants and the necessary adaptations needed for Tribal/Urban Indian health providers to engage and retain people in care.

The on-demand course is based on a live virtual training developed and presented in spring 2021 by Drs. Thomas Freese and Daniel Dickerson. The training was sponsored by California Department of Health Care Services (CA DHCS), Opioid and Stimulant Implementation Support-Training and Technical Assistance (OASIS-TTA)-MAT Expansion Project, UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs (UCLA ISAP), Kauffman & Associates, LLC, and Pacific Southwest Addiction Technology Transfer Center (PSATTC), HHS Region 9.

One and one-half (1.5) CME/CE credits are available at no cost for completing this course.
