Emergency Medical Treatment for Sexual Assault/Rape Survivors

If you are sexually assaulted:  Go to a safe place. Ask someone you trust to stay with you. Don't wash, change clothes, or douche before calling or going for help. Don't touch any evidence of the incident even if the assault took place in your room or home. Go to the nearest emergency medical facility.  Seek appropriate medical and/or counseling services.

If you are a survivor of a recent sexual assault, you need to assure yourself that you are medically well.  Go to the nearest hospital emergency room including:
