Riseup Society offers support groups for those impacted by domestic abuse within their intimate partner relationships. They are based on the understanding that profound healing is most often experienced in the context of a safe and supportive community. All groups focus on educating participants on the dynamics and impact of abuse, and on assisting them in their journey towards a holistic healing of mind, body and spirit.

Phase I is an introductory group and Phase II is an advance group for those who have previously participated in therapy or an introductory group.
