The annual prevalence of intimate partner violence (IPV) in samples of men seeking alcohol treatment has been estimated at 50% or higher. One proposed approach to these co-occurring problems is the provision of IPV screening and treatment referrals within alcohol treatment programs. The current study found that alcohol treatment providers infrequently referred men with a pretreatment year history of IPV to domestic violence treatment programs, and that men receiving such referrals rarely followed the recommendation and sought additional treatment. These findings suggest future research is necessary to identify factors that may act as barriers to IPV assessment or referral in alcohol treatment settings, factors that may limit client follow-through on such referrals, and new strategies for addressing IPV in substance abusing populations.
Physical assaults by men against their female romantic partners, also referred to as intimate partner violence (IPV), represent an important social problem. Intimate partner violence results in serious physical injuries and psychological distress for its victims (Cascardi, Langhinrichsen, & Vivian, 1992), as well substantial societal costs related to mental health care, physical health care, criminal justice interventions, child welfare, social services, and lost work productivity. The prevalence of IPV is highly elevated among men seeking alcohol treatment: National surveys estimate that each year approximately 12–14% of married and cohabiting men in the U.S. engage in physical violence against a romantic partner Schafer et al., 1998 and Straus & Gelles, 1990. In contrast, the pre-treatment year prevalence of IPV in alcohol treatment seeking populations has been estimated at 50% or higher Chermack et al., 2000, Murphy & O'Farrell, 1994 and O'Farrell & Murphy, 1995.
