2nd International Conference on Novel Psychoactive Substances

12& 13th September 2013, Swansea, UK.

Following the success of last year’s International conference in Budapest, we are pleased to announce that this year’s conference will be hosted by the esteemed College of Human and Health Sciences at Swansea University, in collaboration with Hertfordshire University and the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA).

Novel recreational drugs are often misrepresented as ‘safe’ for recreational use; however they can be just as harmful and addictive as other stimulant drugs such as cocaine or amphetamine. Our panel of international experts will be examining the latest scientific research in this ever changing world and will aim to highlight the dangers these drugs represent, the importance of knowing their effects and strategies to reduce their use.
