Is the acronym for ("Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner")

Recently I discovered a new program offered by many hospitals in the United States, Canada, the U.K. and Australia
This service is offered to both female and male sexual assault victims. Apparently; this S.A.N.E. program has only been available in my province for eighteen months.
Maybe it's because I'm just unnervingly curious but; I'd like to know if there are any men here at Male Survivor who have used these services and what experience they have had with it...both ("positive and negative")

For those unfamiliar with such programs you can check the links below.

No affliction nor temptation, no guilt nor power of sin, no wounded spirit nor terrified conscious should induce us to despair comfort from God.

Today well lived...makes every tomorrow a vision of Hope.

NJ has imposed a fine of $800 on each person convicted of a sexual offense that goes to our SANE program. This has been going on for several years.
