 Course Description:

"Methamphetamines and the Brain" is a webinar designed with a harm reduction lens to help individuals understand the physiological effects of methamphetamines. This webinar will help identify how understanding these physiological effects play a crucial role in individual practice. This webinar will go over neurotransmitters and the role they play in overamping and psychosis. Later in the presentation we will dive into what happens to the brain when an individual stops using methamphetamines. Science plays an important role in  how we, as front line workers, respond to methamphetamine overamping and psychosis, understanding these body reactions will help develop a greater understanding.
