*A note on terminology: We use the term ‘solvent abuse’ on our website because this is the term that the public largely uses when searching for help and support around issues with solvents and gases. We want people who need support to be able to find it. However, we understand that the term ‘abuse’ is no longer acceptable in some settings and we are endeavouring to use appropriate language when discussing this issue. We are currently carrying out a consultation to do so. Please contact us if you would like further information.
