The Violence Intervention Program offers comprehensive medical treatment and forensic evaluations to all victims of or those at-risk for child abuse, sexual assault, and elder abuse in Los Angeles County. Staffed with specially trained health care professionals, all services are offered away from the noise and confusion of general emergency rooms and have integrated subspecialty consulations, follow-up care, mental health screenings provided by the VIP Community Mental Health Center, and social work and case management referrals.
VIP's largest medical clinic is the Forensic Urgent Care Center at LAC+USC Medical Center. Too often the trauma a victim suffers continues after the assault. It is prolonged by cold, impersonal emergency rooms and staff unfamiliar and unprepared in dealing with the youngest and most vulnerable victims of abuse. VIP offers a safe haven for all victims of violence. Our Center provides a warm and understanding environment that promotes security and starts them on the road to healing. For us it is about more than gathering evidence, though we remain at the forefront of the field working with law enforcement and social services to find justice and create positive outcomes for victims. It is about providing for patients in their most vulnerable time of need. The Forensic Urgent Care Center offers 24-hour medical and forensic services to vicitms in crisis as well as primary medical care to children and elders in ongoing, high-risk circumstances. All services are bilingual, multicultural, and victim sensitive. All assessments are done in cooperation with social and legal services charged with the responsibility of multidisciplinary interventions.
