After 30 years held as a slave, what is the recovery process?

Three "extremely traumatized" women are being cared for by a charity after managing to leave a London house where they had allegedly been held captive for more than 30 years. Experts say compassion, time and allowing freedom of choice are essential to the rehabilitation process.

Aneeta Prem, founder of the Freedom Charity, which was contacted by one of the victims, tells CNN how they worked with police and what happens next for the victims.

    There would be a recovery, but it is going to be slow and painful. Remember they had been traumatized for 30 years, and so we need to look at their being healed in 10 years depending on the love being shown them.
