Violence Free holds domestic violence batterers accountable by providing a group treatment opportunity for them to change their belief systems related to safety and respect in their significant partner relationships.


People referred to Violence Free are usually court ordered to treatment.  They go through an Orientation where they fill out questionnaires regarding their intimate partner violence. At times, a request is made by the  court for a Domestic Violence Evaluation. In those cases, a clinical interview is done, the individual answers questionnaires regarding their intimate partner violence, and assessments are made. The recommendation to attend or not attend group is sent to the referring agency.


Violence Free has programs in Bismarck, Minot, Williston and Dickinson.  All Programs are certified to be in compliance with the North Dakota Batterers Treatment Standards.
