Class Schedule & Fees
All of our services are provided by staff of Abuse Counseling and Education, Inc., a 501(c)(3) Not for Profit Public Charity. We are therefore able to offer our program for a very low cost. Our Indianapolis classes are only $20 per week if you pay in cash. We invite female partners of men enrolled in our program to attend our women's class for free so they too can learn the skills we teach. This is an excellent value for couples who think both of them are abusive to the other. Click here to learn more about our women's program

Our program consists of Evidenced Based Classes for men and women to help break the patterns & habits of abusive relationships. There are important things to consider in choosing appropriate, effective and accountable counseling services to help end abusive behavior. Click here to read about how our program is different and better than other options. It includes an explanation of our philosophy, approach, and strategy.

"We are not a mental health or substance abuse agency throwing together a quick anger management program. This is our specialty! Our evidenced based classes are specifically designed to provide the most safe and accountable intervention to end all levels of abusive behavior; not simply physical abuse. We challenge verbal abuse, mental abuse, emotional abuse, child abuse, and many other forms of abuse."

We are much different, better, and safer than anger management counseling programs. As a matter of fact, as an intervention for abusive behavior, typical anger management counseling, mental health counseling, or couples counseling can easily make the problem worse and may escalate the violence or abusive behavior.
