Activity Release Date: April 6, 2022
Activity Expiration Date: April 6, 2025
Every 7 minutes an American dies of a drug overdose, propelling healthcare providers to expand our knowledge on illicit substances. We humans have always aimed to experience the amplified effects of natural and synthetic substances that produce euphoria. The line between clinical and criminal utilization of substances is often blurred.
In our society today, we have a very “objective” classification of substances based on generally accepted medical use and a respective propensity to become habit-forming. However, as one can recall with the substance of ethyl alcohol, a substance may never actually chemically change, yet can move across legal classifications of substances. How does that happen?
Join our discussion on illicit substances to learn how numerous illicit substances have similar, if not the same, mechanisms of action as legal prescription medications readily available today. The time has come to progress from “Just Say No” to “Just Say Know”!
At the conclusion of this continuing education activity, the participant will be able to:
• Recall dozens of common substances of abuse based on the pharmacological classification
• Describe the respective pharmacology of common substances of abuse
• Recall the DEA-controlled substance classes of common substances of abuse.
