There are a number of drugs that are associated with going out, partying and having a good time.  The effects of these drugs and ways to reduce the harm caused by these drugs are discussed.

You can print any of the information from this site - some sections have a print friendly version - see top right hand side of page. Or for more information visit one of your local CADS units - click here to find one closest to you.

If you feel your drug use is causing physical or mental problems, cease using. Try to get some sleep and eat well. Continuing to use will increase the bad experiences and make it difficult to think rationally. Seek medical assistance - go to the local Accident & Emergency Department (hospital, local clinic) or ring them (hospital section of phone book).

If someone is in danger of harming themselves or others ring 111 and ask for the police.

Find out in this section about the effects of drugs and how to reduce risks from using them. Remember to watch out for your friends.
