A drink being ‘spiked’ means that a drug or a combination of drugs has been added to a person’s drink without them knowing.
Drink spiking may have been done as a practical joke but it can lead to sexual assault, robbery and/or violence. People often do not realise that something has been added to their drink until it is too late.
Some tips to avoid having a drink spiked is to only accept drinks from people you know and trust, always keep your drink with you, don’t share drinks and if you start to feel dizzy or you think your drink may have been spiked, get to a safe place with people you know and trust.
