Domestic violence and substance abuse have come to the forefront of the public's awareness in the last decade. This document focuses on the simultaneous occurrence of these phenomena and proposes that providers reconcile any possible differences in treatment and collaborate, if not integrate services. Providers must move beyond their respective theoretical approaches and form a new transtheoretical delivery approach to treatment in order to provide the best possible outcomes for clients. Additionally, while the document assumes that substance abuse programs are offering appropriate assessment and treatment to their clients, it seeks to further heighten their awareness to issues concerning domestic violence, in particular the needs of the victim of domestic violence.
