UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs, the CA Hub and Spoke System MAT Expansion Project

When: Thursday, December 6th from 10 am - 12 pm 

As efforts continue to address the opioid epidemic in California by expanding access to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), many providers report an upswing in stimulant use, especially methamphetamine. Stimulant use can undermine treatment and thwart patient progress. This webinar will cover the resurgence of stimulant use and clinical strategies to address stimulant use in treatment programs.

Richard Rawson, Ph.D., UCLA Professor Emeritus, will present an overview of the problem and evidence-based treatment strategies for stimulant use disorders, especially in the context of OUD treatment. Joe Sepulveda, MD, Assistant Medical Director at Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD) and Asst. Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCSD, will discuss strategies his team is using in FHCSD’s Medication-Assisted Treatment program.

Learning objectives:
  1. Discuss three (3) clinical challenges experienced by patients with stimulant use disorders.
  2. Describe three (3) empirically-based interventions for stimulant use disorders.
  3. List two (2) clinical strategies to address stimulant use disorders in MAT treatment.
Registrants will be emailed a link to join the webinar.
