BACH Family Advocacy Program
The Family Advocacy Program is designed to break the cycle of abuse as early as possible and to provide treatment for affected Soldiers and their Families. FAP provides assessment and counseling services for victims, offenders and Families where child abuse/neglect or adult abuse has occurred. Services are also offered to Families "at risk" for incidents of domestic abuse. The FAP is the Reporting Point of Contact (RPOC) for all allegations of child abuse/neglect and adult abuse. All installation law enforcement personnel, physicians, nurses, social workers, school personnel, childcare, youth services personnel, psychologists and other medical personnel are mandated reporters and are required to report suspected cases of abuse/neglect to the RPOC. All commanders will report allegations of abuse involving their Soldiers to the RPOC. Individuals may walk in or call for an appointment. Referrals are also taken from friends, Family members, command, physicians, military police, and various other civilian and military agencies. All allegations of abuse will be screened immediately and scheduled for an assessment at that time. Services include: individual, marital, Family and group therapy to address anger control, communication skills, relationship enhancement and parenting skills. FAP offers domestic abuse, anger management, parenting, and victim's support groups. Treatment services are offered to all eligible beneficiaries. There is a FAP social worker on call after normal duty hours and on weekends to address child abuse/neglect and adult abuse emergency cases.
