If you are in immediate danger, CALL 9-1-1.
Domestic Violence is a chronic abuse of power.
It isn't just hitting. The abuser controls the victim through threats and intimidation. Physical violence is often the end result of months or years of intimidation and control. If you are in an abusive situation, be aware that internet and phone use can be traced by your abuser. Please take precautionary measures.
