NEW REPORT: Is alcohol the new #1 Date-Rape Drug?

Over the years, many date rape drugs such as roofies, liquid ecstasy and special-K were the main culprits, have been the main culprits behind sexual crimes due to their odorless, colorless, and tasteless properties. However, a shocking new report now names alcohol as the #1 date-rape drug of this generation.

Because of the social acceptance and accessibility of alcohol, many might not realize its harmful properties when it lands in the wrong hands. But Joe Schrank, a leading social worker and addiction specialist, is making it his mission to share with everyone the harmful effects of alcohol and why this substance is just as dangerous as other drugs used in date-rape crimes.

Alcohol may:

  •  initiate relaxation and a little bit of euphoria.
  • confuse, sedate and potentially cause a loss of consciousness.
  • lower inhibitions and incapacitate a person, rendering him or her incapable of consenting to any sexual act.
  • reduce capacity of potential victims to physically resist a sexual attack.

Joe SchrankJoe Schrank has spent his life in and around active alcoholism. After stabilizing his own post-undergrad depression and alcoholism, he returned to school and studied clinical social work at Iona College and the University of Illinois. Following a tenure at Promises in Malibu, CA, Joe established the first sober living facility in New York City, Loft 107.

Frustrated with the lack of media attention on the recovery community, Joe then founded TheFix.com with Maer Roshan. Most recently, Joe founded ReboundBrooklyn, an innovative treatment program, with Dr. Scott Bienenfeld, a prominent psychiatrist specializing in addiction. His hobbies include obsessing over the Yankees, overheating, and avoiding human contact. He’s been intoxicant free for sixteen years.
