12th July 2013. It’s the highlight of the year for many and FRANK has some handy tips to make sure you have the best time possible.

Latitude, Love Box, Reading and more…so many festivals, so little time! With lots of your favourite bands, your friends and freedom for a couple of days, festivals are an occasion to remember so make sure it’s for the right reasons.

Whether or not you think you’ll try drugs, make sure you know all the facts. To do this you can check out the information on different substances on the drugs A-Z or FRANK is always around if you’d like to chat. You can call on 0300 123 6600 at any time of day throughout the week.

What should you do if you feel under pressure to take drugs?

You should never feel pressured to take drugs and in fact, most people don’t take them or need them to have a good time. Say  ‘no’ clearly and firmly and don’t make a big deal about it.

FRANKS got lots more advice about how to resist peer pressure.

How to stay safe

Something else to be careful of is mixing drugs. Taking different drugs in the same night, including alcohol, can make the effects even more unpredictable. Doing this can at worst cause coma and death. Leave the mixing to the DJ!

If someone collapses, turn them on their side and call an ambulance immediately.
