Domestic Abuse Group

Make a profound change in your or your loved one's life

Bryan Medical Center provides domestic abuse groups for men who have displayed violent behavior or domestic abuse. Participants in these groups can make profound changes in their lives.

Benefits to participants include the opportunity to:

  • Change behaviors
  • Change attitudes
  • Understand and handle emotions
  • Help you or your loved one reduce or resolve conflicts without resorting to violence

The men's domestic abuse groups are led by trained professionals who work closely with community support systems.

The group is designed to change violent behaviors, not save a marriage or relationship. The group is not the sole means to ending domestic abuse but is instead a part of our community's response to abuse.
