Domestic Violence Intervention Program
The Domestic Violence Intervention Program (DVIP) is a nationally recognized 24-session rehabilitation program for individuals who have committed domestic abuse. The goal of DVIP is to change the offender's attitudes and behaviors and to hold them accountable for their actions. DVIP participants are typically referred by the courts or DHR. Separate groups are available for men and women.
