The Cocaine, Meth & Stimulant Summit has been eye opening in regards to the different ways we can help people in our communities. It has shed light on the right way to make changes.

2019 was my second Stimulant Summit and I now consider it an annual “must attend” event for the latest information on stimulants from a wide range of authoritative sources. Great and timely information.
