Men Overcoming Violence
Domestic violence results in injuries to more than two million women each year. Countless others suffer non-physical, but equally disturbing, acts of aggression.
Our Domestic Violence Program offers essential services designed to help disrupt the cycle of violence.
The Men Overcoming Violence Program provides evaluation and treatment, over 52 sessions, in a structured psycho-educational group format.
We offer in-depth treatment based on the development of empathy toward others, the understanding of causal factors of violence for each participant, education and skills building to reduce the risk of future violence.
Both court mandated and voluntary referrals are accepted.
The group meets weekly and is a fee-for-service program. We accept most insurance, offer a sliding scale and have a $25 minimum fee for this group.
