Crisis & Shelter
DVS does not provide perpetrator interventions but can help you find appropriate services.
If you are abusing your partner:
Take responsibility for your behavior and make a commitment to change. Call UW hotline at 1-800-MEN-1089 – the Men’s Domestic Abuse Check-Up is a project for men 18 and older who are concerned or have mixed feelings about their behaviors toward their partner.
Get perpetrator intervention by a local registered treatment provider, or find another perpetrator intervention provider.
