Humans have always had a complex relationship with drugs: some help us; some heal us; and some hurt us. The problem with the drugs of addiction is they can do all of three. However, long term use of these inevitably leads to dependence where, once ceased, will lead to withdraw symptoms. The ‘highs’ and addictiveness combined with the potency of the drugs can have fatal consequences.

In this podcast we delve into these Drugs of Addiction (namely Opioids, Amphetamines, Cannabinoids, Cocaine, and Benzodiazepines) to explore their sordid history and discuss how we test for them today.

Dr Devika Thomas
