What should I do if I have been sexually assaulted or raped?

If you have been sexually assaulted or raped, you should find a safe place and telephone your local Rape Crisis Program Hotline number, which is accessible 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and every day of the year. You can also call the police or 911. Do not wash, change your clothing, or clean the crime scene. If you have to use the bathroom, do not remove any evidence.

It is imperative that you visit the hospital Emergency Department (ED) immediately to receive treatment for your injuries. The hospital can furnish you with medications to prevent pregnancy and infections. The hospital can also gather evidence for the police, and give you referrals.
