Assault and Abuse Services
Guiding You from Crisis to Healing
The professionals at Providence Intervention Center for Assault and Abuse know recovery from sexual or physical and domestic violence is a lengthy process. Recovery and healing is a personal journey. Yes, time eases the pain. But, if you’re struggling, it doesn’t mean you’ve developed serious mental or emotional problems. Everyone recovers on their own timeline.
During the course of healing, some people become more aware of their own strengths and more confident in the power of the healing process. People do recover from sexual and physical assault, just as they recover from other crises. We know, because we’ve helped thousands of survivors, their friends and families find their own paths to healing. And, we’re here to help you, too.
