Drug/Alcohol Facilitated Sexual Assault

Perpetrators use date rape drugs and/or alcohol as a method to incapacitate their victim and to ensure that they will not be able to resist the assault. In addition, date rape drugs and alcohol make it difficult for the survivor to recall enough/any details about the assault in order to prosecute the perpetrator. Drug/alcohol facilitated sexual assault can happen to anyone, anywhere, whether the victim is on a date with the perpetrator, or the assailant is a stranger or someone that is known.
