Non-emergency medical procedures
Even if you do not have evidence collected at a hospital emergency room, it is still important to get medical attention. An examination in this case will include treatment of any physical problems and various lab tests for sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy. Such non-emergency treatment can be arranged through your family doctor or other healthcare provider.
Counseling is available to Bucks County Community College students at all three campuses. Counseling may be accessed by appointment via Student Services 215-968-8182 or firstname.lastname@example.org . Student Services hours of operation may be found at www.bucks.edu/student/counseling/. Counselors are available to confidentially discuss crisis or non-emergency matters related to rape, sexual assault, victimization or abuse. They can help you obtain medical assistance, psychological counseling, understand victim’s rights and learn coping methods to assist you following the assault. Discussing your concerns with a counselor will help you sort through feelings and make decisions. You may contact the Student Services Center for information without disclosing your name. Counselors will not reveal your identity to anyone without your permission.

A Word About Date Rape Drugs
Some predators may employ date rape drugs such as Rohypnol and GHB to incapacitate their victims. Such drugs can be easily mixed into drinks. When mixed with alcohol they can be harmful or even fatal. Suggestions for avoiding date rape drugs include:
"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." —Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972
