Drink Spiking

Drink spiking is when alcohol or another drug is added to your drink without you knowing. This results in you becoming drunk or drug affected unexpectedly. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks can be spiked, and it can happen at clubs, bars and at parties.
Drink Spiking
Drink spiking is prevalent at university student events, pubs & clubs and even at the office party. A National survey suggests one in four young women who regularly go to pubs, clubs and particularly University social events had their drinks spiked last year; as many as 30 women a week were potential rape victims after their drinks were spiked.
Date rape or drug rape is when drugs are given to someone without their knowledge, with the aim of reducing their inhibitions or consciousness to a level where a sexual assault can take place. The drugs that are used (gamma-hydroxybutryate, or flunitrazepam) can be added to a drink in a pub, club, or even at a party. In alcohol they are odourless, colourless, and tasteless, and cause sedation or euphoria as quickly as 10 minutes after ingestion.
Nearly all accept that, at present, the problem is not going to go away. Attendance at events by Answers staff therefore provides many benefts:
  • Guests at the event feel reassured and confident
  • Doubt is eliminated
  • PR value demonstrates the organizer’s commitment to providing a safe environment
  • the high profile of staff discourages and dissuades would-be perpetrators

The danger at office parties is deemed as serious as to cause authorities to produce a warning television advert showing a man furtively slipping a pill into a woman's drink at a Christmas party with the words: "Drug rape is happening, don't let it happen to you".
"The office party is a very dangerous environment and women must be on their guard. You are much more likely to be raped by a work colleague than by anybody else. The message to women is: Be on your guard. Don't put your glass down and if someone offers to buy you a drink, keep an eye on what they are doing. We are sure dozens of incidents are not being reported to us"

DRINK SPIKING - GUIDE TO KEEPING SAFE
Be on your guard
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOU HAVE BEEN DRUGGED?
  • If you're drinking, be aware of your tolerance to alcohol.
  • The symptoms of these drugs vary but victims report blurred vision and temporary memory loss.
  • Effects can start as quickly as 15 minutes after the drink is taken
  • If you feel odd, nauseous, or wasted after a couple of drinks when you'd normally feel fine, go somewhere you feel safe.
WHAT ARE THE WARNING SIGNS?
  • Feeling dizzy or faint
  • Feeling sick or sleepy
  • Feeling intoxicated or confused even if you have only had a little alcohol to drink
  • Passing out
  • Waking up feeling uncomfortable and disorientated, with memory blanks about the night before
WHAT ARE THE BEST SAFEGUARDS?
  • Make a plan - Plan your journey or night out, arranging your journey to-and-from home
  • Make sure someone knows where you are going and what time you will be home
  • When going to a pub, club, student event or party avoid going alone. Friends can watch-out for each other
  • Stay aware of what is going on around you & away from situations you do not feel comfortable with
  • Never accept a drink from anyone you do not completely trust and do not share or exchange drinks
  • Don’t leave your drink unattended, even when going to the toilet
  • Drugs can be put in soft drinks, tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc., as well as alcohol
  • There are a number of drugs that could be used to incapacitate you; the majority will not be easily detectable in a drink
  • Drinking from a bottle and keeping your thumb over the top is a good idea. If you leave it unattended you may not be able to see if anything has been put in it
  • If you return to your drink and it has been moved, looks different, appears to have been topped-up, or tastes strange, don't take a chance. If there is the opportunity
    to test it, do so
  • Consider very carefully whether you should leave the pub, club or party with someone you have just met. Just knowing someone’s mobile number means nothing
  • If you begin to feel really drunk after only a drink or two, seek help from a trusted friend, or a member of the club or pub management. It is important to get to a place of safety as soon as possible.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE BEEN DRUGGED
  • If you are with a friend you trust, tell them why you're worried. Get them to help you home, BUT BE CAREFUL WHO YOU TRUST - statistics suggest 70% of victims know their attacker
  • If you are alone or with a stranger, go to the venue manager or security and ask for their help; if you are a female, try to seek help from some other female and try to tell more than one person. Wait in their office while they ring your parents, a friend or a LICENSED taxi to take you home
  • Don't let a stranger help you - he could be the person who spiked your drink
REPORTING THE INCIDENT
  • Report the incident to the police as soon as possible. Most of the drugs that are commonly used leave the body very quickly - some in less than 12 hours - and are therefore hard to detect, the sooner you are tested the more chance you have of it still being in your system
  • If you fear you have been raped whilst under the influence of drugs, taken willingly or not - report it. Go straight to the police and insist that they take a blood and urine sample, it could prove to be vital forensic evidence.
  • Make sure you are accompanied by a friend or even better, a solicitor. Also after the police make sure you visit your doctor or clinic. Never forget the risk of AIDS
  • The police are very anxious to point out that anyone reporting being raped whilst under the effect of drugs will NOT be prosecuted for drug taking and will be treated as a normal rape victim.
