The Long-Term Consequences of Sexual Abuse
Sexual abuse and assault are shockingly common. RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, estimates that someone in the United States is sexually assaulted every 73 seconds.

Victims of sexual abuse can suffer devastating physical and psychological effects. To work through abuse trauma, victims often require lifelong therapy.

A Look at the Effects of Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse often affects the most vulnerable groups in our community, including children, the elderly, and the disabled.

The perpetrator of sexual abuse is almost always someone close to the victim. According to RAINN, 93% of sexual abusers know their victims.

Because of the degree of trust between the abuser and the victim, it can be difficult for survivors of sexual abuse to sort through their trauma or even understand that they have been abused.

A traumatized child may experience memory loss before or during incidents of abuse due to their highly distressing nature. In addition, victims of sexual assault and rape often have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on par with veterans who have seen combat.

After abuse, severe psychological distress can persist for decades.

In addition to the physical and psychological trauma, victims often spend many thousands of dollars on therapy and other treatments throughout their lifetimes.
