Dual treatment programs exist. Treatment of substance abuse and domestic violence on their own can oftentimes be difficult, but add them together and finding a suitable and sustainable treatment program suddenly becomes tremendously more complex. That’s why it is so important to choose a dual-diagnosis treatment facility that is knowledgeable and experienced with both.

Focused on serving clients who identify as Christian. Abused women of faith are more likely to stay in an abusive relationship, because they have been misled to believe it is their duty as a good Christian wife and/or mother to obey and accept the mental or physical abuse from their partner. Some of these women are fearful of the moral repercussions of breaking up a marriage or a family.
Although WHEN's main focus is supporting women who have been abused, the organization also hosts an annual conference that offers workshops to support male domestic violence victims, and to educate male abusers who are aware of their ways and seek to make a change.
