Training for Those Working with Substance Users


The New Psychoactive Substances – Designer Drugs & "Legal Highs"

Usual course length: 1 day

Courses can be tailor-made from the following elements:

  • Examining the 'myths' that have sprung up around the new drugs
  • Making sense of the range of substances that come under this heading – what is genuinely new and what conforms to existing patterns of "traditional" drug use
  • Detailing the effects (and side-effects) of the most commonly used new drugs
  • Examining best practice through case-study discussion
  • Clarifying the legal situation after the most recent changes 
  • Determining the challenges for staff and services if clients are using these drugs
  • Sources of specialist help and information
All our our Substance Use courses are mapped to the relevant DANOS Units.
