Drink spiking: Jessica Burrington speaks to Nana Akua on GBNews

Jessica Burrington tells Nana Akua about her recent experience of drink spiking and how the spiking test from CYD got her quickly to the hospital.

‘Drink Spiking’ is a real problem. Whether you know it or not, you’re probably only one friend removed from somebody who has been a victim, and it is not difficult to see why. Every year, worldwide, thousands of people are thought to be victims of drink spiking, where drugs or alcohol are added to someone’s drink without them knowing.

In some cases, so called date rape drugs are used to spike a drink before a sexual assault. Many more incidents happen on holiday or go unreported due to embarrassment or memory loss.
