Using the group "Deluth" model, offenders attend a 29 week program that emphasizes honesty, accountability, humbleness, faithfulness, respect, self-discipline, and recognizes financial responsibility.

We offer short 60-90 minute sessions once a week, or longer 2.5-3 hour sessions twice a month. Offender is responsible to pay for each session as they are attended within a specified period of time. We follow a recommended curricullum each session with homework assignments due the next session that help them work through tough life issues which teaches lessons in how to handle "tough situations".

Accountability is a main issue whereby all offenders are held to a very high standard learning skills to handle lifes' tough situations with understanding & compassion. 
Court Approved Batterer Intervention Program
The STOP Abuse Project is a community program that offers the court ordered & Court Approved Batterers Intervention Program (BIP). A portion of all proceeds will be used to support Domestic Violence victims' programs in the communities that we serve.

The focus of our BIP program is this:
  • Reduce recividism of offenders taking our program
  • Promote responsibility & accountability for offender actions
  • Group confidentiality
  • Multiple times, multiple locations for offender attendance
  • Offender supported program to show consequences for their actions
  • Help the offender recognize the hurt they have caused
  • Teach & mentor the offender the right (& wrong) way to be a "man"
  • Give offenders of Domestic Violence the opportunity to understand their actions hurt people and teach them the "right" way to handle conflict.
