Avalon Healing Center provides acute medical-forensic exams and crisis intervention for ALL ages in collaboration and partnership with KidsTALK and Children’s Hospital of Michigan 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Survivors ages 0-17 may be seen at our Taylor clinic, St. John Medical Center (Detroit) clinic and KidsTALK CAC Medical Clinic (Detroit).

Criteria for survivors of sexual violence under the age of 18 includes:
  • Assault occurring within 120 hours prior.
    (If assault occurred more than 120 hours, will be referred to KidsTALK.)
  • Parent or guardian provides consent for the exam.
  • Law enforcement and/or CPS will be involved in all cases that involve survivors under the age of 18 before our team will accept a referral.

Counseling and advocacy services are available to survivors ages 12 - 17 as well as their supportive family and loved ones. Supportive family and other loved ones of children under the age of 12 years old are also eligible for services with Avalon.

For questions about medical-forensic exams for ages 0-17, call our crisis pager anytime at 313-474-SAFE.
