Mischa Barton Says She Was Drugged Prior to Hospitalization

Mischa Barton Says She Was Drugged Prior to Hospitalization

Mischa Barton is speaking out after being hospitalized for mental evaluation earlier this week.

The 31-year-old actress explained that she was celebrating her birthday with a group of friends when her drink was drugged, leading to her bizarre behavior.

“On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. While having drinks, I realized that something was not right as my behavior was becoming erratic and continued to intensify over the next several hours,” Mischa said in a statement to People.

She continued, “I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given [date rape drug] GHB. After an overnight stay, I am home and doing well. I would like to extend a big thanks of gratitude to the professionals at Cedars Sinai for their great care and professionalism. This is a lesson to all young women out there, be aware of your surroundings.”

We’re so glad to hear Mischa is back home and doing better.

We urge those enjoying a night out to keep an eye on their drinks and constantly be aware of their surroundings!
