The Abuse Intervention Program (AIP) services intend to increase participant ability to understand and identify abusive behaviors, identify the impact of abuse on others, and reduce abusive behaviors for the future. We understand that Warren County has not had any sort of similar intervention program in the last years, which has been a gap in services for the community and one that we look forward to helping address.
What is AIP?
Abuse Intervention Program is a set of services directed to help educate, assist, and hold accountable any person who has been abusive to their partner or ex-partner. Abuse Intervention Program works closely with community partners to keep participants accountable for harmful behaviors, provide collaborative care, and address any barriers that are preventing a healthier change from occurring.
When is AIP?
Abuse Intervention Program provides group counseling on weekday evenings. Individual counseling and case management services are flexible to adjust for any participants scheduling, 8am to 8pm.
Where is AIP?
Services are provided in person, via phone, or via video to accommodate any barriers. AIP services are in Phillipsburg, NJ, in a separate location from all other DASACC services.
AIP staff are trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). AIP staff will additionally provide psychoeducation to clients receiving AIP services. Our services will not have a week requirement, but rather we will expect successful completion to be done once a client reaches the goals set by the treatment team. Clients will be enrolled in our program for as long as it takes them, placing the responsibility for change on the client without allowing anyone to “check off” a specific number of services. Our clinical team understands that it takes time for true change to occur.
