Novel Psychoactive Substances (also known as 'legal highs' or NPS) are popular across most of the UK.  However, the speed of change in this drug market and an increase in reported associated harms means that they are of concern to local, regional and national bodies.

This half day event presents emerging research around the area of NPS and connects with best practice across different service providers.  Focus will be on the impact of NPS on the police service, the toxicology of NPS, and the effects on service users and providers. Challenges and future directions will be discussed at this event.
