Methamphetamine  (MA) use continues to be a significant public health problem in some parts of the US.   Overdose deaths associated with MA in the United States have escalated rapidly since 2015, including MA-related deaths involving fentanyl. During this session, research on MA will be discussed including common clinical challenges in treating individuals with MA use disorders which includes powerful craving, hypersexuality, anhedonia, cognitive deficits, and poor retention in treatment.  Additionally, medication for MA use disorder treatment will be presented such as: topirimate, mirtazapine, bupropion, naltrexone, amphemtamine/methylphenidate.  Behavioral interventions, which are the mainstay of MA use disorder treatment, will be reviewed. Examples of these interventions that will be discussed are contingency management, the community reinforcement approach, Matrix Model and exercise.
