Domestic violence is a universal, community issue. Victims and survivors of domestic violence are frequently impacted by substance use disorder. Understanding the link between substance abuse/addiction and domestic violence is crucial to appropriately responding to the multi-level trauma faced by many survivors and ensuring that they have safe access to all forms of medical, mental health, and substance abuse treatment. Our presentation will provide the rationale for why this screening is so important, as well as basic tools to support providers as they interact with people who may be experiencing domestic violence and substance use disorders.
This event will be held in-person and online. If you'd like to attend in-person, please join us in the Levy Conference Room.
