1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

club drugs: emerging trends and risks.

    This document is from the UK National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse and is an examination of treatment of 'club drug' users.

    ‘Club drugs’ is a collective term for a number of different substances typically used by young people in bars and nightclubs, at concerts and parties. These drugs can be harmful and heavy use can develop into a dependency. Data collected since 2005-06 now tells us enough to form an idea of the scale and nature of the problems associated with the more established club drugsecstasy, ketamine, methamphetamine, GHB/GBL, and mephedrone. What is becoming clear is that despite the widespread use of club drugs, they are currently causing a treatment problem for relatively few people. There is no evidence to suggest they are replacing the most damaging substances, heroin and crack, as drugs of dependency, but they can seriously harm the physical and mental health of the people who use them.
