Anyone can be drugged and sexually assaulted - someone could easily slip something into your food or drink without you knowing about it, whether it's alcoholic or non-alcoholic. This may be done to make a sexual assault easier for the offender, and you could become a victim.
Drug facilitated sexual assault
There are many different sexual assault drugs out there with street names like roofies, the 'date rape' drug, easy lay, or liquid X. Because these drugs take several forms including tablets, capsules, pills and clear odorless liquids, it is difficult to know if a drug has been put into your drink. Some of these drugs can cause death when mixed with alcohol.
If you've been drugged you may feel:
- sick to your stomach
- overly drunk
- happy or outgoing
Or you may experience the following:
- loss of coordination
- inability to protect yourself from an attacker
- loss of memory
If you feel any of these symptoms, or if your drink looks, smells or tastes different, stop drinking and call 9-1-1 for medical help and police.
If you've been sexually assaulted, please report it immediately.
