Heartland Alliance Marjorie Kovler Center

The Marjorie Kovler Center for the Treatment of Survivors of Torture is a program of The Heartland Alliance in Chicago, Illinois. Kovler Center is one of the first torture treatment centers in the United States. Since 1987, Kovler Center has provided integrated, high-quality mental health, medical, and social services to survivors of politically-sanctioned torture and their families. A volunteer network of professionals provides psychotherapeutic and physical rehabilitation treatment services to survivors of torture. In addition to transforming the lives of individuals recovering from the complex consequences of politically-sanctioned torture, Kovler Center also trains and educates service providers locally and globally and advocates for the end of torture worldwide.
