There is a national domestic violence hotline number, 1-800-799-safe. Also there is futures without violence, http://www.futureswithoutviolence.org. National coalition against domestic violence, http://www.ncadv.org

This information was obtained from an article in the American family physician magazine by Daniel Dicola, M.D. and Elizabeth Spaar, D.O.
