Most drugs leave the body 12 to 72 hours after being taken. It's really important that a blood or urine sample is tested as soon as possible for drink and needle attacks...

01

Tell someone.

If in a pub or club, tell the bar manager, stewards or members of staff

02

Stay.

Stay with them and keep talking to them

03

Call 999.

Call an ambulance if their condition deteriorates

04

Look out.

Don’t let them leave with someone you don’t know or trust

Evidence.

If you still have some of the spiked drink left, keep hold of it. It may be used as evidence. Give it to someone you trust, until it can be given to either the Police or Medical Services

Needle Spiking?

Report it!

Call 101 and report the attack to the Police as soon as you possibly can

08

Speak up

Speak to someone you trust, a family member or friend, so they can support you through this process
