Polydrug Use Service

Polydrug use refers to the use of two or more psychoactive drugs in combination to achieve a particular effect. The comedown can be as extreme with feelings of paranoia, depression and fear and other unexpected side effects due to the mix of drugs being used. Users often experience suicidal thoughts and feelings associated with this.

FAST offer a service that is specifically geared to helping people who are affected by using these types of drugs.

Whether you are experiencing effects from recently using these drugs or you want to break the cycle of drug use in your life, you can talk to us in confidence.
