If someone has spiked you, we're here for you. If you're ready to, you can report spiking to us online.
But if you don't want to talk to us, or if you want extra support, there are lots of people who can help.
You're in control, and it's up to you who you talk to and what help you get.
Your health and wellbeing is the most important thing to us. If you feel unwell you should seek emergency medical attention and tell them that you believe that someone has spiked you.
Call an ambulance if the symptoms get worse.

Mental health information and support
A Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) is a place you can go after a rape or sexual assault to get confidential medical, practical and emotional support from specialist doctors, nurses and support workers.
We can refer you to a SARC or you can refer yourself without involving us at all. If you prefer, you can ask staff at a SARC to report what happened to you to the police on your behalf.
