Precautions About Date Rape Drugs

There have been multiple recent reports of people in Charlotte area nightclubs consuming drinks that have been spiked with date rape drugs. These drugs, sometimes referred to as “roofies,” can incapacitate a person, leaving them vulnerable to a sexual assault or rape.  

Please use reasonable precautions to avoid consuming a spiked drink.  Go out with trusted friends, and watch out for each other.  Buy your own drink, do not leave your drink unattended, and do not accept a drink offered by a stranger.  Tell the manager or host if you think your drink has been spiked. 

If you suspect that a friend was given a spiked drink, tell the manager or host what happened.  Stay with your friend and watch their condition closely.  If their condition deteriorates, call 911 for medic and report the incident to the police.

Join Us for a Screening of “The Anonymous People” March 5

Student Life will be showing the film “The Anonymous People” on Thursday, March 5, 2015, at 10 a.m. in Tate Hall.

“The Anonymous People” is a feature documentary film about the more than 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.  Deeply entrenched social stigma and discrimination have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The moving story of “The Anonymous People” is told through the faces and voices of the leaders, volunteers, corporate executives and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement is fueling a changing conversation that aims to transform public opinion, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting recovery solutions.

Please join us to watch and discuss this documentary.
