Culturally Responsive and Trauma-Informed Care for Domestic Violence and Substance Use Disorder

September 27, 2023

This October, the Great Lakes ATTC, MHTTC, and PTTC are honoring Domestic Violence Awareness Month by sharing culturally responsive and trauma-informed training and resources that support individuals and families experiencing domestic violence (DV), intimate partner violence (IPV), and substance use disorder (SUD). Research shows there is an association between DV/IPV and SUD, and these co-occurring factors make it challenging to administer effective mental health and recovery support services. For this reason, the Great Lakes ATTC, MHTTC, PTTC and SAMHSA have developed evidence-based products and treatment recommendations addressing the complex issues inherent to these behavioral health factors.


We invite everyone to use and share the following content to support those affected by IPV, DV, and SUD:
