Nonviolent Alternatives is a highly specialized domestic violence Batterers Intervention Program. We are certified by the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence in compliance with Indiana Code  Our evidenced based classes are specially 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 not a mental health or substance abuse agency throwing together a quick anger management program. We are the Central Indiana specialist in ending abusive behavior. We set the standard.  Helping people end abusive behavior all we do and we are the best!

We believe strongly no one in their heart wants to be abusive or harmful to others. You owe it to yourself to learn the skills needed to have loving, kind, happy, healthy relationships. By attending our program you can learn how to change bad habits and put an end to your own abusive words and actions.
