In Las Vegas, victims of rape can go to The Rape Crisis Center for help. But when it came to actual therapy, they had to go to outside centers with licensed counselors. They faced waiting lines - and sometimes, they went to the same centers that were counseling rapists. So The Rape Crisis Center decided to open its own counseling division. We talk to counselors about treating sexual assault victims, and to victims themselves about what it takes to face their trauma.
