Today the only clinic in the United States designed to specifically treat survivors of sex trafficking opened its doors right here in the valley.
The innovative clinic is an addition to the Phoenix Dream Center.
Fox 10’s Danielle Miller has more on what this clinic means for these survivors.
This new clinic is called the Halle Healing Center and it will provide a full range of medical care needs exclusively to survivors of sex trafficking.
It's the first like it in the country.
"When it comes to these young women being given specialty care, our system has just not caught up to what their true needs are," said Brian Steele, CEO of the Phoenix Dream Center.
Here at the Phoenix Dream Center they're trying to meet those needs with the new innovative clinic.
