Ways to keep from being a victim of date rape drugs.

Ways to keep from being a victim of date rape drugs.

Keep your eye on your drink.

Don't drink anything from an open punch bowl.

Never take an open can or bottle from someone. Don't take a water bottle if the seal is broken.

If you set your drink down and go off, don't return to that drink. Get a new one.

Set aside notions that women must always be polite, friendly and nonconfrontational. Never take a drink from a stranger, someone you don't know well or someone you've just met, even if that person was introduced to you by a friend.

If you believe you have been victimized, get to a hospital right away before you urinate, shower, bathe, douche or throw away clothes you were wearing. If you receive certain treatments within 72 hours, there is less chance that you will develop a sexually transmitted disease or become pregnant. Ask hospital workers to take a urine sample and test it for date rape drugs.

If you believe you have been victimized, report it to the police. Early reporting can aid in criminal investigation and may prevent someone else from becoming a victim. If possible, keep any evidence, such as the glass which held your drink.
