The Family Advocacy Program is responsible for the prevention, identification and intervention of child and domestic abuse in military families to include intimate partners. Its primary goals are prevention, victim safety and support, treatment and intervention, command and offender accountability and responsibility for a standardized response to incidents of domestic or child abuse within the Navy.
Three Master level clinicians at FFSP Newport will provide an assessment of your individual needs, provide a safety plan and formulate a treatment plan to support your personal and professional goals. In addition, restricted reporting of domestic abuse is an option in which support and guidance will be offered without Command notification, if requested.
