Suspected Cause Of Drug Overdose May Be Linked To “DOC”

On Tuesday, March 11, 2014 a high school student from Mountain View was found unresponsive on the Steven’s Creek Trail. The student was transported to a local hospital. The Mountain View Police Department is conducting a thorough and extensive investigation as well as working with Santa Clara County Public Health, the Mountain View Los Altos High School District and local hospitals to identify similar incidents and trends.

The suspected drug used by the student was possibly “DOC” (2,5-Dimethoxy-ChloroAmphetamine). “DOC” is a fairly new psychedelic street drug, similar to LSD, and is a combination of hallucinogenic and amphetamine chemicals. It has very long-lasting effects and is extremely dangerous. Signs and symptoms vary depending on the individual, however, if you suspect they have ingested “DOC” immediately call 9-1-1.

A letter (see below) was distributed to parents and students through the Mountain View Los Altos High School District. We are not releasing any additional information related to the identity of the student, the specific school or medical information. If there are any other questions, please contact Sgt. Saul Jaeger at 650-903-6345 or Policepio@mountainview.gov.
