Drug Facilitated Rape
Drugs can deliberately be placed in any drink, not just alcohol. Effects may range from feeling of well-being and short term memory loss to an apparent aphrodisiac and intoxication effect. Serious adverse effects can occur such as seizures, insomnia, anxiety, nausea, dizziness, hallucinations, comatose, even death. Some common side effects of these drugs include a drunken appearance, drowsiness, light-headedness, staggering, confusion, muscle relaxation and amnesia that may last up to 24 hours.
If one suspects they or someone they know has been drugged and/or assaulted, first, go to a safe place, call the college police or local police by dialing 911. Go to a medical facility for immediate treatment of any injuries. Call for support.
