Emerge is a group counseling and education program for men and women who are abusive in intimate partner relationships. Emerge sees clients who have been abusive in heterosexual and same-sex relationships. Emerge also has an Anger Management program and a fatherhood group. All programs satisfy court/probation and DCF requirements.

The Emerge website provides up-to-date information on other domestic violence programs and resources including a list of resources for survivors.

Due to COVID-19 Emerge is currently conducting all groups via Zoom, which will continue indefinitely into 2021.

Requirements & Restrictions

Group members must admit to having been physically, emotionally, verbally, economically, or sexually abusive to a partner in an intimate relationship for the Abuser Intervention Program. For the Anger Management Program, the incident(s) must be non-intimate partner related (e.g. involving coworkers, strangers, friends, or other family members).

The Abuser Program has a sliding fee scale, from $25-$75/week based on income. Due to COVID-19 however, they have temporarily lowered the minimum fee, which may be as low as $10 or $15 for unemployed or disabled clients who qualify. There is a community service option for members who are on probation and are unemployed. The Anger Management program fee is $40/week, plus a $25 orientation fee. There is no community service option for Anger Management. The parenting group is free.
