Pennsylvania Psychostimulant Symposium 2019

The Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP), in coordination with the Mid-Atlantic High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) program, which is funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), convened the Pennsylvania Psychostimulant Symposium on November 19, 2019, at the Best Western Premier in Harrisburg.

More than 300 participants learned the dangers associated with the misuse of psychostimulants while discovering collaborative strategies for protecting communities and preventing widespread stimulant use disorder. DDAP and HIDTA wish to thank those participants for making their attendance at the Symposium a priority. Their engagement, collaboration, and input were critical to the success of the Symposium. Feedback on their evaluation forms is being reviewed and analyzed.
