Reoffenses and noncompliance during treatmentWhat must happen if a participant reoffends or is not compliant while they are in treatment?

Each treatment program certified for any level of domestic violence intervention treatment must ensure:
(1) The treatment program has defined what it means to reoffend, including abusive or controlling behaviors that may or may not be illegal.
(2) The treatment program has established and written consequences if a participant reoffends during treatment or does not comply with program requirements. 
(3) The program has documented that the participant was made aware of the consequences of reoffending prior to starting treatment.
(4) If the participant reoffends during treatment the program must document in the participant's record:
(a) The details of the reoffense;
(b) Any changes to the ongoing assessment, treatment plan, level of treatment, or minimum treatment period and requirements for the participant as a result of the reoffense or if the program has discharged the participant because the program feels the participant is unlikely to benefit from additional time at the program; and
(c) The notification of the reoffense to the referral source.
(5) The program must document reoffenses or noncompliance in:
(a) The participant's record;
(b) Reports to the court, if applicable; and
(c) Reports to the victim, if feasible.
(6) When a participant is noncompliant with their contract, program rules, or attendance, within seven days of the noncompliance the program must:
(a) Notify the court or other referral source, if applicable; and
(b) Document in the participant's file:
(i) The details of the noncompliance;
(ii) The consequences imposed by the program and referral source, if applicable; and
(iii) Any changes to the participant's ongoing assessment and treatment plan as a result of the noncompliance.
