TRIGGER WARNING: Discusses physical and sexual abuse. Reader discretion is advised.

When someone is in pain, it can take an outsider seeing what’s happening to get them the help they need. And while it might take a friend or family member calling to connect with the individual, once we have, Amudim’s ability to provide support or resources can become a reality.

Chaya*’s friend was concerned and did not know where else to turn. Chaya’s life has involved a series of difficult circumstances at significant life points, and she had reached a point that these could no longer be ignored.

Chaya grew up in a neglectful home where she and her siblings endured both physical and verbal abuse; and the only solution Chaya saw was to get married young to escape her home environment. Unfortunately, the painful cycle continued as Chaya’s husband sexually abused her throughout the marriage; and she never received support or therapy. Despite the abuse and probably a result of Chaya’s years of unresolved trauma, she still had an unhealthy attachment to her husband. Several months ago, they finally separated; Chaya felt broken and was going through the daily motions in a state of disassociation. When Chaya’s friend called us, she understood that things could not continue as they stood.

Once her friend reached out, Chaya was on board to speak with anyone who could offer help or guidance. When our case manager spoke with Chaya, it was clear that she was suffering from complex PTSD and depression and needed residential therapy as soon as possible. They explored options of places that would best help Chaya work though her traumatic childhood and adult experiences. After a joint phone call with Chaya and a family member, we found the best treatment program for her needs.

At this point, Chaya has a month left in her residential program, and she will then step down to outpatient treatment within the facility’s partial hospitalization program. Our case manager is in regular contact with Chaya and the treatment team; and we are hopeful that now that Chaya is getting the care she needs, in time, she will find her way to a healthy and better future.

If you or someone you know is struggling, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Amudim is just a phone call away and here to help.
