About Neptune

NEPTUNE has been developed to improve clinical practice in the management of harms resulting from the use of club drugs and novel psychoactive substances. It is aimed at clinicians working in a range of frontline settings, including drug treatment and recovery services, emergency departments, sexual health services, primary care and mental health services.

With the support of a multi-disciplinary group of experts, the project has developed clinical guidance, based on a systematic review of the evidence and clinical consensus. These can be accessed through the link above.

Clinical tools are being developed to complement the guidance, including e-learning modules and care bundles. These will be available on the website in due course.
