Facts to help you have a good time when you're out at pubs and clubs and to help keep you safe.
Whether you are taking drugs, alcohol, medicines or herbal substances, this guide will tell you their effects, the risks you take, and how to deal with problems, whether they happen to you or a friend. You should know what the law says, what medics say, how to stay safe and how to come down safely.
This guide is for you and your friends. No myths. No hype. Just facts. Keep it handy – the First Aid information alone may just save someone’s life. But please remember, we have space for only limited information - you can get more details from the agencies listed in the Links section.
The new online guide has been set up so it works offline too. This means that once you have accessed it for the fist time via an internet connection, it will be downloaded onto your device and you can bookmark it to your home screen for easy access - just like a regular app. Subsequently you will be able to access it whether or not you are connected to the internet and will also receive alerts about any updates.
We will make updates on an annual basis but we will also add any new information at more regular intervals if it needs to be brought to our readers’ attention.
A PDF of the booklet is available on the London Drug and Alcohol Policy Forum website: www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/ldapf
Look after yourself, look after your mates.
