Webinar: What’s the Latest: Methamphetamine and Psychosis (March 6, 12pm PT)


Join the ADAI State Opioid Response (SOR) team on March 6, 2024 (12-1pm PT) for the next installment in their “What’s the Latest” webinar series: Methamphetamine and Psychosis.

With the growing use of methamphetamine, methamphetamine associated psychosis is a problem that more and more providers are seeing. This problem can impact the ability of patients to engage with treatment providers and recommended treatments for medical, psychiatric, and addiction issues. This talk will describe what methamphetamine associated psychosis is and how it differs or does not differ from an underlying psychotic disorder. We will also spend time describing evidence-based approaches to addressing these symptoms and promote engagement and retention in care.
