In this article the author discusses the role played by drugs and alcohol to sexual assault. He presents the study conducted by Janice Du Mont and colleagues which focuses on the prevalence and factors associated with drug-facilitated sexual assault where it was found that victims where administered with alcohol and drugs before the assault was performed. The author asserts that the development of preventive measures on sexual assault and giving care to victims should be considered.
