Here is a list that was published in the Guardian on what drugs kill the most people in the United Kingdom.
At Cansford we mostly see people tested for drugs like cocaine and heroin, but when you consider the amount of deaths related to alcohol it really does suggest that this is a big issue too.
Since this report was published we would guess cocaine use may have reduced a little due to people feeling the pinch financially, and with cheaper alternatives on the rise.
All in all, this type of list gives a broad view of the potential of drug use leading to fatalities, and even though cannabis use is prevalent in the UK it has relatively few deaths associated with it.

This latest BBC story highlights the issue of alcohol abuse in young children but maybe we shouldn’t separate Alcohol from Drugs. I suspect that the same age group is having problems with drugs as well. And why wouldn’t they copy older teenagers and young adults in their community? It is a natural part of growing up.
