Batterer's Treatment Program

Program Statistics

Statistics show that FVIP is successful in helping reduce the re-arrest rates of persons charged with domestic violence. According to 15-year averages, graduates of our program re-offended at an average of 13 percent, while non-graduates re-offended at an average of 27 percent. These figures are in comparison to the national average of 32 percent.

Who Is Eligible For the Program?

FVIP's Batterer's Program is open to volunteer clients who need help or are seeking information about domestic violence. Other clients may be mandated to attend FVIP by referral sources such as: judges and magistrates, probation and parole officers, and the Department of Social Services. Other referral sources include: law enforcement officers, victim advocates, counselors/therapists, attorneys, and health care providers.

The program is designed for persons 18 years of age or older, however, clients who are 17 years old may be considered with a signed parental consent form.
