Preventing spiking 

Some easy steps to follow will reduce your risk of being spiked;


  • Never leave your drink unattended
  • Always watch your drink being poured
  • Never accept a drink from strangers
  • Avoid drinking too much alcohol
  • Stick together with and look out for your friends 


If you believe you have witnessed somebody spiking a drink, tell the intended victim straight away and accompany them to a member of staff and tell them what happened, give as good a description as possible of the offender. You may have to provide information to the police, but you have played your part in protecting your community.
