If your answer is "YES" to any of these questions, you may benefit from our program. Our experience shows that once a person begins to abuse, he has a problem that is likely to get worse. Men often feel guilty and apologetic after an abusive incident. Many promise themselves and their partners that they will change. Unfortunately, even with the best intentions, most do not stop being abusive without outside assistance.
