Local drug warning
There are a few reports of drugs in circulation in both Devon and Dorset that are causing severe adverse reactions. We’d like to raise awareness of these potentially harmful drugs in order to keep those who use our service and the wider public safe.
The drugs are being manufactured to resemble prescribed medicines. This means that they are packed in blister packs or pharmacy tubs and are made to look like benzodiazepines – diazepam (Valium), lorazepam, flunitrazepam (Rohypnol) and azalopram (Xanax).
The pills are blue and some are marked as DAN 5620. Early tests on these blue pills have shown that there is contamination present.
If you use our services you’ll be getting harm reduction advice and information direct from our staff. But for those who may not be accessing our services currently, please be vigilant and keep each other safe.
Please do call one of our teams who will be happy to provide with more information on how to stay safe.
