Provincial Health Services - Provincial Family Violence Treatment Program


Description
Provides assessment and treatment for individuals who have been mandated through the court system for charges related to domestic violence. Non-mandated individuals may participate based on clinician judgment and space availability.

Provides comprehensive and consistent treatment services across the province based on the belief that individuals are capable of change and that treatment programs grounded in best practice will fulfill the intended outcome of decreasing instances of family violence and keep families and communities safer.

Services promote non-abusive behavior, support change efforts and hold individuals who engage in abusive behavior accountable for their actions. The provincial scope and nature of the program, collaboration amongst service providers, and ongoing development are keys to the success and continued growth of the PFVTP.

Treatment includes 3 main components:

  • group treatment
  • addiction and/or mental health treatment and support
