Our Violence Intervention Program is one of four State-certified Batterers Intervention Programs in Bexar County and is the only program in Bexar County that is funded by Community Justice Assistance Division (CJAD). Classes offer a comprehensive curriculum for both male and female perpetrators of domestic violence.
The VIP program consists of group therapy for men and women who perpetrate domestic and family violence. VIP curriculum allows perpetrators to take responsibility for their abusive behavior and teaches them the fundamentals of a healthy, non-violent relationship. It is designed to cover different aspects of domestic violence and family abuse.
If you are ready to end your abusive behavior, join one of our groups. The program consists of 20 group sessions that meet on a weekly basis for two hours. If you are interested in joining, please set an appointment.
Cost is as follows:
- Initial evaluation $25. This is a one hour appointment to complete paperwork and meet one-on-one with a professional counselor.
- Group sessions $25 per session. The total amount of sessions is 20.
Participation in the VIP program is open to the public as well as persons referred by the court, CPS, probation office, or parole office.
If referred by any of the above mentioned, we will provide monthly reports regarding the state of compliance with the program to the source of reference.
Individual therapy available upon request. We are contracted by Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) to provide DV assessments, individual counseling, and psycho-socials.
All service are offered in English and Spanish.
