Support Services for Survivors of Sexual Assault
The Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault (SACASA) provides support and education for individuals and families impacted by sexual trauma.
When you are in crisis, help cannot wait. SACASA's bilingual crisis line support is available 24/7 for people of all ages.
Call (520) 323-7273 for confidential support immediately following sexual assault or if you need someone to talk to, no matter when the assault happened. When you're ready to talk about it and seek support, we're here for you. When you call, advocates will listen to your needs, offer you the appropriate resources, and connect you with emergency care, if necessary.
SACASA's Crisis Advocates will also meet you at the hospital following a sexual assault. They are here to support you and will:
- Help you understand your medical and legal options and your rights as a survivor of sexual violence.
- Arrange for a medical forensic exam if you decide to get one.
- Work with medical staff, law enforcement, and others to create a safe environment for you at the hospital and after you leave.
- Connect you with counseling and other resources when appropriate.
Therapy and Support
Therapy and support are critical in the healing process to reduce the long-lasting effects of sexual violence. We offer individual, couples, family and group therapy for survivors and their loved ones ages 12 and older.
Our licensed therapists are trained and have extensive experience in treating sexual trauma. We understand the impacts that this specific type of trauma has on the mind, the body and the soul, and we know the techniques to help you through it.
