Polysubstance use, particularly of opioids mixed with stimulants, has furthered increased the risks of use. This two-part webinar series will discuss the current data on these topics and evidence-based services prevention professionals can implement to address them. It also reviews risk and protective factors for stimulant use and how this current wave differs from past waves of stimulant use.
