A shelter is often unable to treat patients who engage in high-risk behaviors, and substance abuse programs cannot provide the proper intervention and safe haven that abuse victims need. A School of Social Work forum recently brought together researchers, clinicians, therapists and administrators to explore integrated practice models that combine substance abuse treatment with services for victims of domestic violence, New York, NY.
