Domestic violence is never okay. The Family Advocacy Program provides services to prevent abuse, promote early identification and reporting, provide treatment for offenders, and support victims. Military OneSource provides information and confidential non-medical counseling when safety and abuse are not concerned.

 

Abuse and control can take many forms

No relationship is perfect. But it’s important to be aware of unhealthy behaviors which can lead to domestic abuse — emotional, economic, sexual and physical. Abuse can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender or economic status.

 

Safety is essential

Even simple actions can help those at risk for abuse — and we all play a role. Learn more about warning signs, reporting options and how to help.

Two options for reporting abuse for service members and their families

 

▪ Restricted reporting— for those who want

victim advocacy services, medical care

or counseling but do not want an official

investigation. Reports must be made to a

Family Advocacy Program Manager, military

health care provider, domestic abuse victim

advocate or clinical treatment provider.

 

▪ Unrestricted reporting— for those who want

to pursue an official investigation through

command, Family Advocacy Program or law

enforcement.

 

▪ All reports of child abuse will

be investigated.

 

Help is available at any stage

 

You can always reach out for help — for free

confidential support, information or referrals.
