Stimulants are drugs that increase activity in your body, causing it to speed up. They can cause harm if a person uses a dose that is too high over a period of time.
Stimulants include cocaine, amphetamines, crystal meth, MDMA (Ecstasy), Ritalin and caffeine. They are sometimes referred to as “club drugs”.

Know the signs and know how to respond. You could even help to save a life.
