Description

Designer drugs are synthetic compounds whose molecular structures have been modified based on chemically similar illicit drugs. The newly created substances can often be purchased legally because their modified chemical structures are not covered under existing drug laws. Since, in many cases, designer drugs are not yet illegal, they are inaccurately referred to as “legal highs” or “herbal highs.” This course gives an overview of the types of designer drugs and describes the challenges related to testing and assessment of designer drug use as wells as goals for treatment of designer drug addiction.
