Family Advocacy Program
The Navy is raising awareness of ways to prevent domestic violence and is committed to promoting healthy relationships, strengthening families and preventing abusive behavior.
The Family Advocacy Program provides clinical assessment, treatment and services for military members and their families involved in incidents of domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner.
Child abuse is the physical or sexual abuse, emotional maltreatment or neglect of an unmarried person under 18 years old.
The Family Advocacy Program provides a variety of interventions and treatment services to meet the needs of individual families. FAP provides counseling, clinical case management, treatment groups, and refers families to military and civilian resources as appropriate.
There are two types of reporting options for adult victims of domestic abuse, restricted and unrestricted. Both options make available to victims the full range of advocacy, medical and counseling services.
