Drink or Food Spiking

Some criminals might try to add a substance, such as drugs or alcohol to your drinks or food.
The drug may affect the way you act, or the way you behave with other people.

The most common reasons for drink/food spiking are:

  • to be malicious
  • to carry out a sexual assault or rape
  • to carry out a theft
  • for amusement

The following steps may help prevent someone from spiking your drink:

  1. Never leave your drink unattended.
  2. Don’t accept a drink from someone you don’t know.
  3. Keep an eye on your friends’ drinks.
  4. Stay away from situations that you don’t feel comfortable with.
  5. Let someone know where you are and what time you expected to be back, especially if you’re going on a date with someone you don’t know.
  6. Don’t give out too much of personal information to someone you’ve just met.
  7. It’s important to remember that if you’ve already been drinking, it may make you less aware of any danger.
