Leading the Way in Trauma Therapy

Victim Compensation Funding

We’re pleased to offer a specialized therapy service for victims of crime. Our intensive trauma therapy helps most crime victims to recover from the trauma and loss in a matter of days, so they can move on with their lives. Even those with very extensive trauma histories can still make meaningful progress within a few days of intensive treatment.

Every state has a program to provide funds to assist crime victims in recovering from the impact of the crime. This can include funding for therapy. Each state has its own system for determining which crimes/victims are eligible for compensation, and how the compensation is provided. In general, a police report is required. We work with the Victims Compensation agencies in most states, to assist crime victims in obtaining funding for their treatment (and sometimes for travel costs as well). Our staff can assist you in arranging for your treatment, and in working with your state's agency to determine your eligibility for compensation.

To express your interest in receiving intensive therapy funded by Victims Compensation, please e-mail us or call us (413) 282-7797.

What To Expect

1. The screening and intake process can take some time. We ask you some questions by phone, and also ask you to complete a questionnaire online. This enables us to determine whether or not you're eligible and likely to benefit from the treatment program, and about how many days of treatment you will need.

2. The treatment involves full consecutive days, e.g., Monday through Thursday, 9-4 each day (maybe fewer or more days; this is just an example). This can be intense and difficult at times. And life-changing, in a good way.

3. Follow-up evaluation is done at 2 weeks post-treatment, and again at 3 months post-treatment. We want to know how you're doing! Also, documenting the outcomes of our innovative intensive treatment approach will enable us to obtain further grant funding, so we can provide the service to others in the future.
