The Need for Clinical Guidelines on NPS
ByOwen Bowden-Jones, Dima Abdulrahim
Pages 12

In Chapter 2, “The Need for Clinical Guidelines on NPS: NEPTUNE”, Owen Bowden-Jones and Dima Abdulrahim focus on the need for guidance specific to NPS and why existing substance misuse guidance is not sufficient. The chapter introduces the model of NEPTUNE (Novel Psychoactive Treatment: UK Network) clinical guidance and the products developed over time as a response to the current gap in knowledge and experience in the management of NPS in the UK and beyond.
