Description

Drink spiking has become an increasingly disturbing health issue, with nearly 4000 suspected incidents occurring annually in Australia. The immediate effects of these incidents range from mild sickness to temporary loss of consciousness but their hidden effects can linger for a long time. This informative and practical program explains what drink spiking is and how to recognise and avoid situations that may increase susceptibility to drink spiking. It explores the prevalence and nature of drink spiking, situations where it is likely to occur, the people who do it (including friends!) and how victims are chosen. Using expert opinion (including interviews with Geoff Munro from the Australian Drug Foundation, and Dr Helen Parker from the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine), narration and dramatised scenarios, the program delivers balanced information about the substances commonly used in drink spiking, potential health consequences to the victim and strategies to minimise the risks
