Teenagers’ experiences of sexual violence may involve the use of alcohol and/or drugs by the victim, the perpetrator, or both.
If you have been raped or feel uncomfortable about a sexual experience that happened while you were drunk or high, call the sexual violence hotline at 800-489-7273—for more information, or just to talk.
