Community Alcohol and Drug Services (CADS) is an Auckland-based organisation providing education and counselling for those with alcohol or drug problems. Counselling and advice is also provided for family and friends concerned about another’s drug use.
CADS has produced 'sorted' to assist people who want to be better informed about the effects of drugs commonly used to party. This is so people can:
- Make informed choices
- Reduce the risks associated with their drug use
- Think twice before using
- Remember that all mind altering drugs will effect your ability to drive (even if you feel you are still capable). It is not ok to drive while under the influence of any of the drugs covered in this booklet.
CADS does not endorse the use of illegal substances and believes that no drug use is the safest option. However, CADS recognises that some people will choose to use substances and they will use for a variety of reasons. Minimising the harm associated with substance use is CADS’ philosophy.
