Batter’s Intervention Program is a 26-week course designed to address the root causes of domestic violence and prevent participants from committing acts of domestic violence in the future.
It is monitored by the Florida Department of Children and Families and costs an individual between $700 and $1,000 to complete.
To get into the batter’s intervention program, you have to go through an initial assessment. The assessment includes a psychosocial evaluation to determine if you need any additional mental health or substance abuse treatment.
You also have to sign a contract admitting responsibility for your actions and follow strict rules on class behavior and attendance.
There is a one-time orientation which is followed by 26 straight weeks of group counseling sessions.
