Welcome to the Leeds Club Drug Clinic website! Here you’ll find info about drugs – what they are, the desired effects, the undesired effects, how to reduce the harms, how to help yourself if you have problems and where to go to get help. Go ahead, snoop around!
Leeds Club Drug Clinic is a free NHS service for people who want help changing their drug taking behaviour and is focussed on ketamine, mephedrone, GHB/GBL, legal highs, MDMA and hallucinogens. It is based at Leeds Addiction Unit which is part of Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. We are proud to work with people from all backgrounds and sexualities.
What sort of problems do people have?
Many people use these as party drugs but in some cases that use can escalate until it starts causing problems with physical and psychological health, relationships, work, finances and other aspects of daily life. Often when people reach that point they simply stop the drug use themselves. However sometimes people find this difficult without support and that’s where we can help.
Why was a clinic started?
The clinic was started at Leeds Addiction Unit (LAU) in December 2011 in response to increasing referrals for ketamine, mephedrone and GHB/GBL related problems.
Who are we?
LAU is one of several agencies in Leeds that provide help for alcohol and drug problems, and has doctors, nurses, psychologists, addiction therapists and other specialist workers who are all experienced in the treatment of substance use problems. It is an NHS service and is part of Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation trust. All treatment is free and confidential.
