First, a huge thank you to all of the friends, fans, and media for supporting me on this journey as we try our best to eliminate the threat of GHB victim abuse and other related incidents. Our mission is to bring awareness to the problem and provide information for the first line of defense. GHB related violence, attacks, and incidents are on the rise and often there is no way to go after the sick individuals who perpetrate these events. What we can do is create an awareness and have steps in place to be the starting point of the preventative measures we need to wipe this out.

I have been working hand in hand with the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, several local Tampa news affiliates, and other organizations like USF to do our part to get the message out!
Please feel free to reach out to the crisis center or 211 if you have experienced any trauma related incidents or refer your friends here if they need help. Check out the Crisis Center website for all of the amazing services they offer.
Through my research I have discovered DrinkSafeTech.com sells coasters, among other things one can use to test a drink if you believe you have been dosed. I now carry these in my purse as my front line of defense. I feel like any parent of any child anywhere would want these in their kids hands. I only wish I had known…
My hope is to bring light to an issue that effects so many from different backgrounds as we help put an end to the shaming and guilt that become a part of a victim’s after an incident. Together we can prevent these types of attacks from happening to others.
