Save The Student:
Nights out are a big part of university life for many students, but when it comes to things like spiked drinks, it's important to stay vigilant so you can still go out and have a good time while keeping yourself safe.
Drink spiking is when someone adds alcohol or drugs to a person's drink without them knowing. Sometimes it is done to cause distress or embarrassment to someone, but sometimes it is used with the intention of stealing from or sexually assaulting the victim.
Alcohol is most commonly used to spike drinks, either by adding some to a non-alcoholic drink or adding double instead of single measures.
Drugs used to spike drinks are often called date rape drugs but aren't always used for sexual assault.
