  • Domestic violence is a major health concern. As many as one in four American adults has been a victim of, witnessed, or perpetrated family violence in their lifetimes.

  • ACES domestic violence treatment program was developed for those clients with charges that are domestic in nature. Each client receives a psychosocial evaluation, including a review of the incident report, the criminal background report, and a risk assessment. The program utilizes techniques from both Social Learning Theory and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Clients are taught to identify anger triggers, the cycle of violence, time-outs, stress management, communication skills, thinking errors, and relationship clarification.

We provide free evaluation, treatment, and support groups for victims of domestic violence. Referrals to shelters and other services are also available
