What is Spiking?

Drink Spiking
Drink spiking can happen to any type of drink, whether alcoholic or non-alcoholic.  If you feel ill or become unwell and think you may have been spiked seek medical assistance straight away.
These drugs are particularly dangerous when mixed with alcohol because they combine to have a very powerful effect. In extreme cases. Drugs used to spike drinks may come in powder, tablet or liquid form, and don’t always have a noticeable taste or smell.
Symptoms of drink spiking
-          Lowered inhibitions
-          Loss of balance
-          Feeling sleepy
-          Visual problems
-          Confusion
-          Nausea
-          Vomiting
-          Unconsciousness
How to help a friend who you think has had their drink spiked
- If you are in a bar or nightclub, tell a bar manager, bouncer or other member of staff 
- Stay with them and keep talking to them
- Call an ambulance if their condition deteriorates
- If possible, don’t let them go home on their own
- If possible, don’t let them leave the venue with someone you don’t know or trust
- If possible, try to prevent them drinking more alcohol as this could lead to more serious problems
- Urine and blood tests carried out in the first 24 to 72 hours are most likely to detect drug traces
