If you have experienced physical or emotional violence in your family, AADA is here to help you.
What is Domestic Abuse?
Domestic violence is the use of force or threat to exert power and control over another family member. Domestic violence is against the law. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO HURT YOU. Yet many people believe that only physical violence is abuse. In reality, any repeated hurtful words or actions can be domestic violence.
Physical Abuse - any act or threat of action intended to result in physical harm
Verbal/Emotional Abuse - hurtful, threatening, degrading or intimidating words that make you fearful and lower your sense of worth
Economic Abuse - extreme control of family finances, preventing any financial independence of your own
Sexual Abuse - any unwanted sexual activity forced upon you
