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.


DOSE is a 26-week, psycho-educational group program focused on behavioral education and modification for individuals who are court-ordered or those who choose 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 evidence-based techniques and strategies that focus on beliefs, values, and behavior change. Over 90% of those that successfully complete the program resume a normal life without additional domestic violence offenses.

“I plan to remain a non-abusive human being. The only way (I) can change anything in life (is by) changing my way of thinking. Change the way you think and you can change the way you feel; change the way you feel and you can change the way you act.”
