If you or someone you know may be the victim of any form of gender-based or sexual misconduct, you are strongly encouraged to seek immediate assistance. Your first priority should be to get to a place of safety. You should then obtain necessary medical treatment as soon as possible in order to prevent or treat sexually transmitted diseases and screen for the presence of any date rape drugs. Undergoing a medical examination is also critical to preserving evidence and is a time-sensitive process. Exams can typically be conducted up to five days from the date of the incident, but you are encouraged to seek assistance as soon as possible to prevent the loss of evidence.
