AVALON services are FREE and confidential.
If you have been assaulted within the last 5 days (or 120 hours), you are eligible for a medical-forensic exam, otherwise known as a "rape kit". This is both a medical exam (to evaluate for injury and provide medications) and a forensic exam (to collect evidence). Our medical team can help determine if you should go to the nearest emergency room, or if you can come directly to one of our 5 clinic locations for an exam.
If you are able, try to preserve evidence of the assault. This could be clothing, bedding, undergarments or physical evidence on your body.
If at all possible, try not to bathe, wash, urinate or brush your teeth. Try to avoid eating or drinking anything.
You do not need to file a police report for a medical-forensic exam.
Call our Crisis Number: 313-474-SAFE and press 1 # to speak with a member of our medical team to discuss your options and have your questions answered.
