The purpose of the New Psychoactive Substances (NPS) training is to strengthen the
knowledge of generic workers and enhance confidence and skills for providing information and support to people using NPS/legal highs. New psychoactive substances (NPS),
sometimes referred to as legal highs, are designed to produce similar effects to illegal drugs such as cocaine, cannabis and ecstasy. It is often difficult to tell what chemicals are in NPS and there is very little research into the short or long-term effects. However, NPS appear to be far from harmless and can have similar health risks to illegal drugs. The course covers; the most common types of NPS, their appearance and effects, impacts on health and behaviour, recognising use, providing information, support and reducing harm. For those attending, it would be useful to have a basic awareness of drugs.
