    Target Audience




    • Overview

      Join Dr. Mark Garofoli for a “stimulating” discussion of substances that raise alertness¬¬—stimulants—which share the same illicit distribution networks as illicit opioids. Methamphetamine (meth) and cocaine utilization has actually remained at a consistently moderate to high level over the past few decades but was lost in conversation due to the sensationalization of the opioid crisis. Additionally, there is a decent amount of overlap and confusion between some hallucinogens and stimulants, since there are substances within both categories of substances of abuse that are almost identical in structure, yet, unique in effect. This discussion of the various stimulants that are utilized, misused, and abused across the globe can help to broaden your view of these substances of abuse (hopefully without even dilating your pupils)!
