Survivor Advocacy

Medical Accompaniment

Advocates are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week to provide face-to-face support and information at Texas Health Resources Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. When you go to the ER at Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas and inform them you are there for a Sexual Assault Nurse Examination, they will take you back to an ER room. At that time, social work will meet with you and dispatch an advocate from DARCC to come be with you through the process. If you have more questions about medical accompaniment, please call our hotline at 972-641-7273.

Law Enforcement/Judicial Accompaniment

Advocates are available to accompany the survivor to the police station and courthouse on request. If you would like law enforcement/judicial accompaniment, please call our hotline at 972-641-7273 and state when and where you would like to have accompaniment. At that time, our advocate will take down your name and phone number and have a staff member follow-up with you in 2-3 business days to discuss the availability of an advocate.
