Domestic Violence Hotlines and Resources September 23, 2004 7:38 PM
If possible, see a therapist! If you can't get a referral from someone you know, see http://cms.psychologytoday.com/google/ for referrals.
http://www.feminist.org/911/crisis.html has State Coalitions & National Organizations and includes the following:
National Domestic Violence Hotline
The National Domestic Violence Hotline is staffed 24 hours a day by trained counselors who can provide crisis assistance and information about shelters, legal advocacy, health care centers, and counseling.
The Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network (RAINN) will automatically transfer you to the rape crisis center nearest you, anywhere in the nation. It can be used as a last resort if people cannot find a domestic violence shelter. 1-800-656-HOPE
Visit the U.S. Department of Justice Violence Against Women Office at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/vawo/ for information and resources, including government press releases and statements. Other shelter information can be found on our Sexual Assault Resources page at http://www.feminist.org/911/resources.html.

(Though I am not a survivor of Domestic Violence myself, I am a counselor and have my Master's degree in Marriage & Family Therapy. I also have had training in as well as clients who were survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.)
