Los Angeles, Jan 28 (IANS) Actress Mischa Barton, who came back home after being hospitalised for mental evaluation earlier this week, has revealed that prior to hospitalisation, she was drugged with GHB, a date rape drug, while celebrating her birthday with a group of friends leading to her disturbing behaviour.
