Developing Opportunities for a Safe Environment (DOSE)


The DOSE Batterer’s Intervention Program has been serving the Triangle community with the mission of “Fostering healthy behaviors and relationships through education and support,” since 1990.

Services

DOSE is a 26-week, psycho-educational group program focused on behavioral education and modification for individuals who have been court-ordered to attend a Batterer’s Intervention Program (BIP). Our group approach focuses on concepts of education, motivation, accountability and responsibility to reduce the incidence of abusive behaviors.

Group facilitators lead sessions using research-based techniques, such as positive reinforcement of adaptive behavior and the reduction of maladaptive behavior through therapy. Over 90% of those that successfully complete the program resume a normal life without additional domestic violence offenses.
