The Australian Drug Foundation recently released an article titled, “The rise of novel benzos in Australia”.

Designer, synthetic, or street benzos are increasingly available in Australia and pose a public health risk similar to other illicit drugs including varying potency levels, contaminated products, fakes and counterfeits (particularly Xanax), and varying times the drug stays in your system increasing the risk of overdose.

The article provides advice on ways people who use novel benzos can reduce harms including testing small amounts of the drug first, taking long breaks between use and seeking medical help to manage withdrawal.
