Think about that trip to the dentist or when you had a backache. Chances are that you have taken a pain pill and felt the effects of a narcotic. All narcotics (pain killers) are chemically similar to the poppy plant and are heroin derivatives. If you have ever been in pain you may have experienced the benefits of pain relief. Its’ that feeling and chemical euphoria that draws our youth in and gets them addicted. When someone starts using, especially pills, they may be productive. They may appear calm but there breathing tends to be slower. With higher doses you may notice that they may have the nods and other physical symptoms. Narcotics are the only substance that will pin point your pupils. The pupils will become very small even in bright light. As with all substances, you should be on the lookout for changes in baseline behavior. Some of the changes can be subtle.

How can I protect myself from being a victim? Don't accept drinks from other people. Open containers yourself. Keep your drink with you at all times, even when you go to the bathroom. Don't share drinks. Don't drink from punch bowls or other large, common, open containers. They may already have drugs in them. Don't drink anything that tastes or smells strange. Sometimes, GHB tastes salty. Have a non-drinking friend with you to make sure nothing happens. If you think that you have been drugged and raped : Go to the police station or hospital right away. Get a urine (pee) test as soon as possible. The drugs leave your system quickly. Rohypnol stays in the body for several hours, and can be detected in the urine up to 72 hours after taking it. GHB leaves the body in 12 hours. Don't urinate before getting help. Don't douche, bathe, or change clothes before getting help. These things may give evidence of the rape.
