London treatments for legal high drugs

Ahed TherapiesLondon clinic treatments for legal high drugs

Over the last 10 years, novel psychoactive substances – NPSs or ‘legal highs’ – have become increasingly available to those looking to abuse them in the UK.

Not only are they advertised and sold widely on the internet and head shops but they are also sold as “safe” and “legal” alternatives to illicit drugs. In reality, they can be just as harmful and addictive as illegal drugs such as cocaine, ecstasy or ketamine. Information on their effects is minimal or inaccurate.

The popularity of NPSs is on the rise because standard drug tests do not have the capacity to identify all the substances within them.

While drug users might view this as an opportunity, it also has very dangerous consequences. With limited knowledge of an NPS pharmacological/toxicological profile, their use is dangerously experimental and potentially fatal. Many of the NPSs are research chemicals, sometimes even discarded products from drug research.
