In a statement obtained by PEOPLE, the "Dancing with the Stars" alum opens up about her drink being drugged during her birthday celebration. "On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday," she recalls. "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."
"I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given GHB," she reveals, before confirming that she's home and doing well "after an overnight stay." "The O.C." actress also thanks "the professionals at Cedars Sinai for their great care and professionalism," adding, "This is a lesson to all young women out there, be aware of your surroundings."
