The Sexual Violence Centre Cork says people's drinks are usually spiked by someone they know.
The centre is campaigning for people to stop spiking drinks rather than leaving it up to the person to check their own.
Campaigners say the blame is often out on the victim after they’ve been spiked for not checking their drink even though it may of looked and tasted the same.
Speaking to RedFM News, Mary Crilly of the Sexual Violence Centre Cork says it’s not usually "the person in the corner" who spikes drinks:
"I think very often the highlight is put on the victim, the highlight is put on someone to watch their drink, put something over it or dip something into it to test to see if anything has been put in the drink. And the reality is your drink has not been tampered with by a stranger in the corner it's someone around your own table who is going to do it. If you are testing your drink when you are out with your friends they are going to ask what your problem is and don't you trust us, so you are not going to do it"
