We've all heard statements like that, but let's get one thing straight: the only person responsible for a rape, sexual assault, or sexual abuse is the perpetrator. It's a difficult subject and one that can be suffered in silence for years and years. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone. KRCC's rape crisis center, The Rising Center, is a safe place you can go to be heard and believed, to get the support and care you need, and to try to heal from this awful and heartbreaking experience. In fact, nearly a million women, men, and children in Kentucky will experience violence or sexual assault this year.
Often, people who have survived rape or another act of sexual or intimate violence feel overwhelmed or scared or don't know whom to talk to or how to get the help they need. Sometimes, people don't know what sexual assault is, or they're trying to help someone else who has been assaulted. That's why we're here. The Rising Center is here to assist survivors, their friends, and family members in getting the resources they need to reclaim their lives following sexual violence.
There are lots of myths and misconceptions about rape and sexual violence. Here are some facts you should remember. It was the first center of its kind in the Hazard, KY area. As a visitor to thisyou may already be painfully aware of the physical, emotional, and psychological wounds that are created by rape and sexual abuse.
At The Rising Center, we are committed to giving survivors and their loved ones the medical, legal, advocacy, and mental health services needed to begin the healing process. We are available to provide counseling, crisis, and on-site hospital services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you or someone you care about has experienced sexual violence, you are not alone. You may have many questions, but are unsure where to find answers.

If you think you've been drugged, ask the hospital to take a urine sample so the police can analyze it for any substance used to incapacitate you. You can also come to The Rising Center, and we will help you get the medical attention you need. Do not destroy evidence of the rape by bathing, douching, changing clothes, or rearranging the scene of the rape.
This also includes eating, chewing gum, smoking, drinking, brushing teeth, and gargling. These activities can destroy valuable evidence such as semen, saliva, hairs, and blood. If you have to urinate, collect the urine in a clean jar with a lid and refrigerate the specimen until you can give it to a medical professional.
If the evidence is preserved, it can be used in the prosecution of the rapist. Even if you choose not to have a forensic sexual assault examination, you should see a doctor to be treated for sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy. If the report is delayed, evidence may still be available. Do not wash your clothes, sheets, or bedding or dispose of any items associated with the sexual assault. And, again, even if you haven't or can't preserve evidence, you should seek the help and support you need. The Rising Center is here to help and support any and all victims of sexual assault - we do not need proof that a person has been raped in order to provide that assistance.
