The Bar Outreach Project
Combating Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault
“Over the years in the bar business I have heard many tales of drugs being dropped into unsuspecting folk’s beverages, and have known a few victims. Our VOICE has been instrumental in bringing awareness to the problem, especially educating staff, who in turn, can make a real difference in educating customers.” – Chad Battles, Co-owner, The Bywater
“Until I went to the [Bar Staff] training, I had no idea that Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault was such a problem. That’s the first step to fixing the problem, being aware that it exists.” – Tim McGill, Manager, Asheville Pizza & Brewing Company
“The Bar Outreach Program has been a great tool in our kit to keep our patrons safe and comfortable.” – Lisa Gambrell, Owner, Desoto Lounge
