Anoka-Ramsey Community College is offering a Day of Meth education for nurses and other health care professionals, Saturday, April 18, 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the Cambridge Campus, 300 Spirit River Dr. S.

Methamphetamine is a very addictive stimulant drug that affects the central nervous system, according the National Institute on Drug Abuse. It is a Schedule II stimulant, which means it has a high potential for abuse. The effects of methamphetamine cross all boundaries in a user’s life—medical, social and legal. Everyone, healthcare workers particularly need to be aware of signs of methamphetamine use. Expect a powerful day of learning.
Speakers at the event include:
- Christine Andres, RN, Anoka-Ramsey alumna from Kanabec County Public Health Department
- Mathias Karayan, MA, LADC from New Beginnings, a nationally recognized center for its treatment of alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamines and other drug dependencies.
- Chris Janssen from the Isanti County Sheriff's Office
- Rick Moldenhauer, MS, LADC, ICADC, LPC from the State Opioid Treatment Authority
