Intake & Orientation

Meet with Choice to Change staff to complete paperwork process and introduce you to the group process.

If you are court-ordered to attend, written notification will be sent to the court indicating that you have completed your intake & orientation, and will begin group sessions.


Twenty-four group sessions address key topics with activities designed to increase knowledge and explore beliefs and behaviors. Activities are geared to help batterers accept responsibility for their actions, learn what abusive choices and behaviors are and why they are not acceptable, and learn to make respectful choices within their relationships.

Exit Interview

After completion of 24 weeks of group, you will end the program with an exit interview.

This is your opportunity to provide us with your impressions of the program.

Sessions are held every Wednesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Mountain Community Center in Mountain, ND. These sessions are ongoing and open-ended, so a participant may join the program at any time.

There are fees for the intake/orientation session and for each group session. Please ask for a fee schedule. There is a sliding fee scale based on your income.
