Preventing Date Rape

1. Keep an eye on your drink at all times during a party! Date rape drugs can be easily mixed into drinks when you're not looking.

2. If you lose sight of your drink, don't consume anymore. If anything, get a new drink.

3. Be assertive. No means no.

4. Be aware of nonverbal cues

5. Avoid excessive use of drugs and alcohol
