Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Services for Date Rape Drugs Addiction in the United States

A date rape drug would be any type of drug that is used to cause sexual assault or abuse to someone who is under the influence of the drug. These types of drugs are used because the effects are felt immediately. The substances cause the victim to become weak, confused, and eventually pass out. Persons who have been unknowingly given date rape drugs will not necessarily remember what had happened. These drugs are dangerous whether they are taken recreationally, or used for date rape purposes because there is the risk for seizure and even death. Date rape drugs are also referred to as club drugs, and there are many commonly known date rape drugs. For example, there is Rohypnol, also known as roofies. Gamma hydroxybutyric acid or GHB, which is also known as liquid ecstasy. Ketamine or special K is a common recreational club drug, and most of these drugs are sold as a powder or a tablet.

When these drugs are used to commit a crime, the powder is put into a liquid and dissolved without the other person knowing. An unknowing drug user could also take a tablet of one of these drugs, and then become affected, and vulnerable. However, if one of these drugs are placed in a drink, some of them do change the color of a clear drink or make the drink look cloudy. You cannot always tell if there is something wrong with your drink, which is why it is important to not leave it unattended. These drugs affect the body and mind in a powerful way, and it happens quickly. The effects last for various lengths of time, but this will depend on the person and the amount ingested. Alcohol does amplify the effects of the drugs, which is why it is dangerous to mix them with alcohol.

Date rape drugs will cause you to feel dizzy, have problems talking, and your speech will be slurred. You will have trouble moving and controlling your muscles and will feel nauseous and or vomit. Your heartbeat can either be very slow or will be increased, along with you feeling sleepy, confused, and having trouble breathing. Alcohol is often the common factor in many sexual assaults, because the victim or the attacker may have been drinking. Research has shown that three out of four attackers had been drinking alcohol when they assaulted someone. Half of the sexual assault victims were consuming alcohol when an assault took place. Date rape drugs are dangerous, and you must be aware of your surroundings when in large social settings. When these types of drugs are used recreationally, they are also dangerous, because the effects are similar to that of alcohol. Excessive use of these drugs lowers your inhibitions and judgment, resulting in injury or driving while impaired and causing injury.

A date rape drug will make you feel drunk, even if you have not been drinking. The effects will feel like you are intoxicated, but are much stronger. These drugs also affect your memory, which makes it difficult to know if you were drugged and assaulted. Unfortunately, you may not have been aware an attack took place until many hours after the assault happened. If something like this has happened, it is important to reach out for help. Contact the local authorities, and visit a hospital or medical clinic immediately for medical attention.
