Batterer's Intervention Program
Alternatives to Abuse is Safe Voices' state-certified Batterer's Intervention Program. This 48-week educational program focuses on accountability for people who use abusive behaviors while teaching healthy relationship skills to replace tactics of abuse. It is certified by the Maine Department of Corrections and participants are referred through the courts, probation, DHHS, or are self-referred. Groups are offered for both men and women. Alternatives to Abuse is the only fee-based service provided by Safe Voices, with a sliding fee scale based on income.
