You Are Not Alone

Sexual Assault Care

To receive SANE services, it’s best to visit our Emergency Department as soon as possible after the assault, but at least within five days. Try not to drink, chew gum, eat, change clothes or shower. However, if you did these things, that’s okay. You should still come to the hospital.
