The website, run by online charity YouthNet, provides straight talking advice and information for young people to help them understand the myths and realities surrounding legal high use. From information on what exactly legal highs are, safety and what your doctor knows, TheSite.org covers the A to Z of legal highs to help young people get trusted information whenever they need it.
Matt Whyman, author and expert on young people’s issues for TheSite.org said: “There are a lot of myths and misconceptions when it comes to legal highs. Media attention like we’ve seen today only increases the need for young people to have access to clear and balanced information about exactly what these things are.
“It’s essential that drug-related information and advice is freely available to young people so that, when faced with making decisions concerning their welfare, they are armed with the facts to make informed choices.”
TheSite.org, run by charity YouthNet, provides straight-talking, anonymous information and advice 24 hours a day, on subjects including drink and drugs, home, law and money, work and study, and sex and relationships. Its bespoke question and answer service, askTheSite, provides young people with a confidential, personal answer to any question within three working days. Drugs-related questions are answered by one of askTheSite’s partner organisations, addaction – a charity that provides treatment, help and advice about drugs and alcohol for young people and adults.
