Understanding the Intersection of Family Violence and Substance Use
Presented by: High Impact/Anger Management
While substance use disorder does not cause family violence, there is a statistical correlation between the two issues. Studies of family violence frequently indicate high rates of alcohol and other drug use by perpetrators during abuse. The association between alcohol use and domestic violence has been well established by past research, and there is growing evidence that drug use is associated with domestic violence. The clearest evidence is that alcohol is a risk factor for family violence offending. This training will review the most recent research on the coexistence of substance use, IPV and substance use coercion.
