Designer drugs are extremely common among young people and are very unstable and dangerous. We at The Blackberry Center are dedicated to fighting this epidemic and help people take their lives back.
What Are Designer Drugs?
Designer drugs are synthetic or man-made drugs that are usually produced in a laboratory. They may be derivatives of popularly known drugs, including both illegal drugs and prescription medications, or they may be designed to mimic the effects of such drugs. In many cases, they can be stronger and more dangerous than the drugs that they are designed to resemble in terms of effects. This is because they are made with substandard equipment, so dosing can vary between drugs without the user knowing. This clandestine production can make the drugs vary in strength.
What Are the Effects?
Because their ingredients change so often, the real danger with designer drugs comes from not knowing what side effects will take place. These drugs are made in clandestine laboratories and with questionable ingredients. The mystery and absence of standards are dangerous because they can cause users to accidentally overdose. This means that once a new batch of drugs enters a neighborhood with a higher dose, users take it without knowing its strength and overdose quickly. These drugs are mostly affecting teenagers and young adults due to their accessibility and low prices.
