Designer drugs

A designer drug, als known as research chemical, is designed to mimic the effects of a controlled substance,  while avoiding classification as illegal and/or detection in standard drug tests. Designer drugs include psychoactive substances that have been designated by the European Union as New Psychoactive Substances (NPS).

There are hundreds of different drugs that are called NPS,  and new drugs are developed almost every week. There are several ways to devide these drugs into groups. One of those is the ‘Drugs Wheel‘, developed by the UK based DrugWatch association, based on UK legistalation. For this website, we use a similiar approach

Mind your trip

The use of  NPS (New Psychoactive Substances) is increasing, especially in nightlife. The drugs are sometimes legally available, but this does not mean that there are no risks involved. Mind Your Trip helps you getting your NPS-use under control. Guided by a professional counsellor, we offer ways of getting insight into your NPS use, and getting your use under control.

Currently there are dangerous trips and pills without a logo containing NBOMEs. A new hallucinogenic substance that is very overdose sensitive. The use of these substances increases the chance of incidents or harm, because they are very likely to cause overdosis. You can download this warning here:QN_EWS NBOMES ENG
