Club Drugs – What Are They?

April 16th, 2007 · No Comments

“Club drugs” are often used by young adults at all-night dance parties, such as “raves” or “trances,” dance clubs, and bars. But in the past few years, these drugs have been found increasingly in more mainstream settings.

Club drug is a vague term that refers to a wide variety of drugs (see below). Uncertainties about the drug sources, pharmacological agents, chemicals used to manufacture them, and possible contaminants make it difficult to determine toxicity, consequences, and symptoms.

Research has shown that use of these street drugs can cause serious health problems and, in some cases, even death. Used in combination with alcohol, these drugs can be even more dangerous. In recent years, there has been an increase in reports of club drugs used to commit sexual assaults.

Common Club Drugs are listed below:
