Rape Crisis Treatment

Whether the assault was recent or years ago, our caring professionals help victims mend their lives. Advocates assist in coordinating social, medical and legal services related to the assault in the community, home or office. We support you 24/7. Counselors provide compassionate treatment for issues such as acute stress disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program provides forensic exams for sexual assault victims as an alternative to the emergency room. Manatee Glens works closely with the local hospitals as well as the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART), Planned Parenthood and law enforcement to provide these services. Victims receive counseling, assistance and support through the legal system. We link you to help with victims' assistance funds.There is no requirement to file charges to receive services.
