Spiking - how to protect yourself on a night out | FRANK

To spike a drink means to put alcohol or drugs into someone's drink without their knowledge or permission. This might be with the intention to incapacitate someone enough to rob or even sexually assault them. Although sometimes spiking can be intended as a joke, it's a very bad joke that is both dangerous and illegal.

 

  • Plan your night out, including your journey there and back.
  • Make sure the venue you are going to is licensed – venues are required to take steps to ensure the safety of their customers.
  • When going to a pub, club or party avoid going alone. Friends can look out for one another.
  • Be aware of what’s going on around you and keep away from situations you don’t feel comfortable with.
  • Think very carefully about whether you should leave a pub, club or party with someone you’ve just met.
  • Make sure your mobile phone has plenty of charge in it before you leave home and keep your mobile safe and accessible.

How to avoid drink spiking

  • Always buy your own drink and watch it being poured.
  • Don’t accept drinks from strangers.
  • Never leave your drink unattended while you dance or go to the toilet.
  • Don’t drink or taste anyone else’s drink.
  • Throw your drink away if you think it tastes strange or different.
