Abstract

This exploratory study examined factors associated with service utilization among pre-certified victims of human trafficking. The Andersen-Newman model of service utilization guided the examination of the predisposing, enabling and need factors associated with service utilization. Tier level of country of origin was associated with the use of information and referral services; referral source was associated with the use of mental health services; and type of trafficking was associated with the use of mental health services and information and referral services. Type of trafficking predicted the total number of services utilized. Victims of sex trafficking used fewer services compared with victims of labor trafficking. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
