Lots of support: Medical attention, law enforcement, psychotherapy, and family/friend's comfort.

Treatment: I must say, it is awful and unfair that you have experienced such an event. Unfortunately there is not one, quick solution to healing. It's a combination of support from loved ones, individual therapy, possible support groups, and legal advocacy if you so choose. This combination has proven efficacy in treatment of many forms of trauma.

Support from the psychotherapist, the physicians involved in the care, as well as friends and family go a long way in the healing process. Attending to the underlying issues, as examples guilt/blaming of self, shameful feelings, or approaching life from a victim mode require mutual exploration and a treatment plan implemented by a trained and empathic therapist. Therapeutic alliance is pivotal.

Therapy certainly helps, but it's always necessary to find a therapist you can really trust. I would recommend you try mycatholicdoctor.com and see if there's a therapist in IL. A faith-based approach that isn't pushy may be quite helpful especially if you've tried other means before. I pray that you recover quickly, being able to find strength to move forward and maybe even help others.
