Abstract : Few health and social issues within military or civilian populations have as far-reaching an impact as family violence and substance abuse. This study advances existing research by using the Army's unique data resources to simultaneously study three problems with known Co-occurrence: spouse abuse child abuse and substance abuse. By supporting the development of improved responses to troubled families findings from this study can potentially reduce mortality and morbidity among military personal and their family members and suggest enhanced strategies for nonmilitary service delivery systems.
