Wake County Abuser Treatment Programs

Have you been charged with assault or domestic violence in Wake County?  For most first time offenders, there’s a good chance your attorney can negotiate a deferred prosecution agreement with the State.  Essentially, a deferred prosecution agreement requires you to complete certain requirements over a year long period in exchange for a dismissal of your case. 

Most domestic violence deferred prosecution agreements require the completion of a 26 week state-certified abuser treatment program.  As shown on the chart below, there are currently 3 state-certified abuser treatment programs in Wake County.  We highly recommend contacting each program to inquire about which location, schedule, and payment option works best for you.
