Substance use is a challenging issue facing domestic violence survivors and the programs that serve them. The national opioid epidemic has intensified the problem.

But progress is being made. We are identifying promising approaches and building community capacity to address the complex needs of survivors. Recognition of the impact of trauma on survivors’ use of substances as well as the role of substance use-related coercion by perpetrators has led to more integrated approaches.

This webinar will highlight strategies for addressing the multiple factors that contribute to substance use in the context of domestic violence; promising approaches to the opioid epidemic by rural domestic violence programs; and an evidence-based intervention to increase safety for people dealing with substance use and trauma.

This webinar is being co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration on Children and Families, Families and Youth Services Bureau, Division of Family Violence Prevention and Services in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
