What are date rape drugs?

Date rape drugs are any type of drug or alcohol used to make sexual assault easier. Someone could put one in your drink when you are not looking. Or you may be drinking alcohol or taking a drug, and a person may make it stronger without you knowing.

Club drugs are also sometimes used as "date rape" drugs. These drugs are very powerful. They can affect you very quickly, and you might not know that something is wrong. The length of time that the effects last varies. It depends on how much of the drug is in your body and if the drug is mixed with other drugs or alcohol. Alcohol can make the effects of drugs even stronger and can cause serious health problems - even death.

Are there steps I can take to protect myself from date rape drugs?

To try to avoid date rape drugs,

  • Never leave your drink unattended
  • Don't accept drinks from other people
  • If drinking from a can or bottle, open your drink yourself
  • Look out for your friends, and ask them to look out for you
