Que Hacer Si Ha Sido Agredido Sexualmente

The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2013 is a federal law that supports the elimination, reduction, and prevention of sexual abuse, sexual harassment, and any and all forms of sexual misconduct, whether these acts are committed by a resident on another resident, or staff on a resident.
 
Pursuant to the US Department of Justice’s Prison Rape Elimination Act, we are required to inform you of our zero tolerance policy regarding sexual abuse and sexual harassment. It is our responsibility to provide the best available care to individuals and provide them a safe environment where they can successfully complete their treatment. 
 
Employees, contractors and volunteers are strictly prohibited from engaging in sexual misconduct, inappropriate  behavior, sexual abuse or sexual harassment with clients or other staff. Instances of sexual misconduct and/or inappropriate behavior jeopardize the safety of all staff and clients.  Sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior are defined as actions of a staff person, contractor or volunteer that are not beneficial to the client.
 
To report an allegation of sexual misconduct please contact the facility’s Director or PREA Compliance Manager at 973-645-4367 . Additionally, to confidentially report an incident of sexual abuse or harassment that occurred in a CURA, Inc. facility you can call the PREA Contact Person at 973-645-4397.
