What should I do if someone used a date rape drug to assault me?

If you have been given a date rape drug, immediately go to hospital for a medical sexual assault exam. Try not to shower or change clothes. An advocate from STSM will be contacted by hospital and will accompany you through the entire process. 

Due to their chemical compound, date rape drugs leave the body at extremely fast rates. Depending on the drug used, it will be detectable through a urine sample for 15-72 hours after ingestion. Therefore going to the hospital straightway is quite important.
