Club drugs typically refer to GHB, Rohypnol, ketamine, and ecstasy. These drugs have gotten the name “club drugs” because they are most often used by young people in night clubs and bars. Here is a bit more about each of these drugs:
• GHB: A central nervous system depressant intended for use in treating narcolepsy.
• Rohypnol: A sedative-hypnotic drug that is not approved for medical use in the United States.
• Ketamine: A dissociative anesthetic, primarily used in veterinary care.
• Ecstasy: The most popular club drug, creates artificial feelings of connection and deep closeness to a person. These drugs are highly addictive and are often habitually abused by club goers and party goers for their hypnotic effects. Club drugs also have a high rate of overdose and are extremely dangerous.
