Tips to help you Avoid Being a Date Rape Victim

The use of date rape drugs is increasing here in Las Vegas. Many people plan a fun evening out on the town, only to have it end in disaster because someone has spiked their drink. Before heading out, here are some precautionary tips that could help you avoid being a victim of this scenario.

Never go anywhere alcohol is being served alone. Always take a friend you can trust with you. Make a pact to look out for one another and insist you both leave if it appears one of you is excessively intoxicated. While at an event, women should not go to the restroom in pairs. Instead, one person should stay back to watch drinks so that no one slips a date rape drug into them.Don’t accept drinks from strangers unless they are bottled drinks with the seal intact. If you are approached by someone who makes you feel uneasy, don’t be afraid to follow your instincts and ask that person to leave you alone.

If you suspect you have been given a date rape drug, a drug test should be administered within 72 hours in order to confirm this. Should the test be positive, contact police and provide them with as much information about your suspected attacker as possible. Doing so could prevent another person from becoming a victim.
