The Crisis Intake Unit (CIU) operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provides hotline and immediate crisis counseling to victims of sexual assault and adult survivors of childhood abuse. Referrals for crisis counseling are accepted from any source.
The CIU also provides the forensic medical examinations of sexual assault/abuse victims for the collection of evidence for sexual assault and child abuse reported to law enforcement and completes intakes for other SATC services.
Forensic medical examinations are performed by Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners in compliance with the protocols established by the Office of the Attorney General. Referrals for a forensic medical exam are only accepted from law enforcement agencies.
