Stimulant Use: Harm Reduction, Treatment, and Future Directions

Japanese American National Museum
100 North Central Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90012

With so much public attention being placed on the overdose crisis and marijuana reform, the needs of people who use stimulant drugs has been overlooked. The conference engaged participants in conversation about stimulant use, including motivations for use, epidemiology of use, related risks, and strategies for mitigating these risks.

We sought to expand the harm reduction conversation beyond syringe access to include interventions for non-injection drug use and to explore why the harm reduction conversation about stimulants has been thus limited in the past.

Attendees included harm reduction providers, social service providers, researchers, policy makers, the LGBTQ community, and people who use stimulants.
