A set of drugs (mostly synthetic drugs) have become known as "club drugs" because they are very popular among dance club devotees, especially young "ravers" particpating in raves (underage or mixed age dances, often arranged in an underground, unregulated fashion). Dissociative drugs, psychoactive drugs, and stimulants are common club drugs, including ecstasy (or MDMA), rohipnol, ketamine, psylocybin (mushrooms), and cocaine.

In general, "club drugs" are a collection central nervous system (CNS) stimulants. They are considered "club" drugs because of their high-abuse in party and dance club/"rave" settings. Though club drugs like cocaine and MDMA have been on the streets for decades, new synthetic compounds are being created everyday to mimic high-energy, euphoric effects demanded by party-goers. The ease of accessibility and flashy marketing of legal highs have created a new generation of users in young adults and teens. Specialized, state-of-the-art clinics are popping up around the world to address this growing addiction.
