Cocaine and other Psychostimulants

Cocaine and other Psychostimulants

Did you know that cocaine and psychostimulant use is increasing in Scotland? These substances are widely available and easy to access. Sadly, deaths where cocaine has been implicated are on the rise.

People who use cocaine or other psychostimulants are not as likely to come to treatment services. That means you have an opportunity, especially if you are working in mental health services or other surrounding treatment services, to provide vital harm reduction information. By completing this course, you will learn that important, and potentially, life-saving information.


Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe psychostimulants in use including cocaine, amphetamines, ecstasy, and mephedrone
  • Recall the current and emerging trends with psychostimulants
  • Identify effective harm reduction strategies for working with people who use psychostimulants

Our e-learning courses can be completed at any date or time, please disregard the 'Start Date' and 'End Date' listed anywhere.
