Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is broadly defined as a pattern of abusive behaviors used by one person in a relationship to control the other. Domestic violence includes physical, emotional, economic, and or sexual abuse. It may also include isolation, restriction of freedom, threats, intimidation, using children to harass you, stalking, and property destruction.

CVTC coordinates the Domestic Violence Identification and Intervention Program in both emergency departments.  This comprehensive program includes screening, medical treatment and forensic documentation, criminal justice advocacy and counseling for victims of domestic and intimate partner violence.  Advocacy and support is provided by our Volunteer Advocates.
