RAPE CRISIS AND SEXUAL ASSAULT SERVICES
IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW HAS BEEN SEXUALLY ASSAULTED
Go to a safe place
Seek Medical Attention Immediately
You may be injured, seeking medical treatment and/or a forensic medical exam for a sexual assault can be filed under the Georgia Crime Victims Compensation Fund, and be at no cost to you.
There is a 7-day window in our jurisdiction to have evidence collected. If you would like to have a sexual assault kit collected to gather evidence for legal proceedings, there are trained emergency department staff members who can help through the process.
Report to Law Enforcement
Call and report the incident to law enforcement. If you are over the age of 18, you can decide later if you would like to participate in the criminal justice process.
Call 706-724-5200 or 1-800-656-4673 for additional questions or to speak to a trained advocate at any time.
PROGRAMS WE OFFER
TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONALS
RCSAS provides training for professionals in nursing (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners), healthcare, law enforcement and first responders, military, social service, mental health and addiction professionals, educators, parents and parent groups, and members of the faith community.
RCSAS offers evidence based prevention education programs to children, adolescents and adults each year. Our goal is to stop sexual violence before it happens, reaching those audiences most at risk, reduce the stigmas associated with these crimes and expand the community's understanding of these issues.
For acute situations, we offer on site Emergency Room accompaniment. Our advocates can answer questions, walk you through the process of the medical exam and offer emotional support.
For scheduling counseling or if you need to speak to someone immediately, RCSAS provides a 24-hour crisis line with staff or trained volunteers available 7 days a week.
Counseling is an open, non-judgemental and safe space to work through problems or challenges.
Rape Crisis offers free, confidential counseling services to survivors of sexual assault and their families, regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred or whether or not it was reported.
