Co-occurrence of substance abuse and family violence is in the range of 50% of cases. Collaboration across systems, including law enforcement, legal/courts, child protective services, DV advocates, mental health, and substance abuse treatment services, is needed to best serve the needs of families impacted by these intersecting issues. This webinar reviews the most current data on co-occurrence rates, review engagement strategies and provides an overview of current best practice and evidence based intervention approaches to working with these families.
