You can’t really be sure what you have bought, or been given, or what effect it’s likely to have on you. We known that the use of many like ‘Clockwork Orange’, ‘Bliss’, ‘Mary Jane’ 'Mephedrone' , 'Ivory Wave', and '5-IT' have been directly linked to emergency hospital admissions, and in some cases, deaths.
Torbay Hospital and Old Farm Surgery are seeing an increasing number of patients having bad effects of these drugs, including a recent admission to Intensive Care and a teenager with a Stroke
These drugs used to be sold as ‘legal highs’ but they have been found to contain one or more substances that are, in fact, illegal
The facts about every drug you can think of, and how to get support for yourself or a friend

It offers one to one support and a number of different groups across the county. Opening hours are available to download. Out of hours appointments can be arranged by appointment in most locations.
We have four hubs (Barnstaple, Bideford, Exeter and Newton Abbot), and a number of satellite services, across the county where you can get support.
