Domestic Violence Perpetrator Treatment

The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) sets standards andĀ certifies agencies that provide treatment to perpetrators of domestic violence. DSHS does not provide direct treatment to perpetrators.

This program ensures that certified programs provide domestic violence perpetrator treatment in accordance with the state laws and rules that were specifically designed for domestic violence perpetrator treatment programs.
