Deaths due to new psychoactive stimulants
Apr 10, 2020
Back in late February, the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre’s (NDARC) Professor Shane Darke presented a seminar titled “Deaths due to new psychoactive stimulants” which is now available to watch online. The presentation covers a wide range of new psychoactive substances such as synthetic cathinones and hallucinogens like the NBOMe-type substances. The presentation looks at mortality in Australia related to these substances, and includes new data on the characteristics of the fatalities, the circumstances of death and toxicology.
