Club Drug Use | Prevention


How can I prevent someone from giving me a club drug?

Club drugs often are used as "date rape" drugs. The following are things you can do to prevent someone from giving you a club drug without your knowledge:

  • Always keep your drink with you.
  • Never take a drink from someone you don't know and trust.
  • Watch out for your friends' drinks.
