Abuse Intervention Programs

As part of our mission to eliminate domestic violence, we work to proactively address the issue where it starts – with those who choose to abuse. We do not condone violence, and at the same time, we recognize the various motivations pushing individuals to that choice. We recognize that choosing to address those motivations and put effort into creating a more respectful relationship is a service that needs to be provided. ICADV, with the support of stakeholders, rebranded the programing from Batterers’ Intervention Programs to Abuse Intervention Programs. The shift in branding from batterer to abuse reflects the experiences of survivors, people who use all forms of abuse, not just physical, and national shifts in service trends.

What to Know?

What to Expect When Accessing Services

Initial Contact: When you contact a certified Abuse Intervention Program, they are going to ask you several questions regarding your referral to an AIP. This process is to identify what services you will benefit from and to learn more about your experience with violence. Lastly, they will likely discuss the program details and requirements, and schedule an initial appointment with you.

Service Delivery: The information below is general information to prepare you for your classes and may vary slightly depending on the program.

  • AIP groups meet on a weekly basis for 26 — 40 weeks.
  • The groups are 1.5 — 2 hours in duration.
  • The groups are conducted by 1 — 2 certified facilitators.
  • The groups are self-pay, but all programs provide a payment plan/ sliding scale fee option.
  • The group size varies between 10 — 20 participants.
  • During the group, you may encounter a monitoring visit. The monitor is there to review the skills and presentation techniques of the facilitator, not you.

AIP classes are not meant to belittle, demean, or judge you. The purpose of this program is to provide space for honest discussion and opportunities to learn skills to change the behavior, beliefs, and attitudes that support your use of violence against your partner. If you feel like you have been treated improperly, please contact ICADV.
