NPS - New psychoactive substances (legal highs)

 

The 2013 World Drug Report, shows a rise in the use of new psychoactive substances (NPS), also known as 'legal highs'. It shows the UK accounts for 23 percent of consumption. As one drug is given a TMP (temporary banning order) or groups of chemicals are banned by the government, manufacturers release a new drug, chemically modified to stay within the law or produce a completely new substance.

In response to tthe increase in use, we have written and produced a range of publications and resources, providing information and advice on some of the most widely used of these substances. Subscribe to our website and we will let you know as more are published.
