Batterers Intervention & Treatment

safe_placeThe Batterers Intervention &Treatment Program (BIT), based on the Duluth Model for domestic violence intervention, is designed to help domestic violence perpetrators understand the domestic violence cycle, including the emotional and psychological process that contributes to their decisions to become violent and aggressive.

Other services available for perpetrators or victims of domestic violence include:

  • Individual and group counseling
  • Skills training and development
    • Medication
