DETROIT (WWJ) – The families of the three women rescued from that Cleveland house are no doubt, overjoyed to be reunited with their loved ones, but experts say the women face a long road back psychologically.
Police say the families of the women never gave up looking for them, but now that they’ve been re-united, what happens next?
Saint John-Providence Therapist Chris Nixon tells WWJ’s Health Reporter Sean Lee that the women will likely need long-term counseling.
“They would need to be connecting to family and friends with whom they feel safe as part of the process as well,” said Nixon. “So a good solid individual treatment process would be warranted and it is something that would have to be done over time.”
Nixon also says there’s no way to predict exactly how long the women will need therapy, but he says the amount of stability each of them had growing up will factor in to their recovery.
