Created out of the need to provide culturally competent treatment for Combat Veterans who have been convicted of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), the Family Recovery Program (FRP) teaches participants the skills necessary to provide physical and emotional safety of their loved ones. This 52 week program is based on David Wexler’s STOP Domestic Violence designed to cover California DV state-mandated curriculum topics and additional treatment to specifically address the unique needs of Veterans with trauma exposure and other military related behavioral issues. The San Diego Vet Center has successfully provided this treatment to Veterans since its first group in 2012.  This valuable resource enables Veterans Treatment Courts to accept those convicted of IPV offenses, many of whom were previously ineligible for relief pursuant to 1170.9 of the California Penal Code.
