Despite the significant public health threat posed by stimulants (e.g., cocaine, methamphetamine), currently there are no FDA-approved medications available for the treatment of stimulant use disorders. However, there are effective behavioral treatments. Decades of research including multiple systematic reviews and meta-analyses have shown that Contingency Management (CM) is among the most effective treatments for stimulant use disorder and other substance use disorders (SUDs). In the CM treatment approach, people earn incentives for specific healthy behaviors according to a well-defined protocol.
