An abuser does an about face

Progress, progress, I love proress

The Albert Lea Tribune: "“I know I hurt just about everyone I talked to then,” Haukoos said. “But now that I look back on it, I was a big loser. Nobody won. Everybody lost. I see that now.” As a graduate of Freeborn County’s Domestic Abuse Program, the 24-year-old man has completed a 27-week program designed to teach abusers the alternatives to the life they had been living — and to take accountability for their actions. Haukoos said the course, which is set up as a group program, has taught him invaluable skills that he will always remember. And though the dark thoughts that led to the abuse and the drug use still sometimes creep into his mind, he now recognizes them as they appear and knows the tools that he can use to make sure those thoughts don’t become actions — ever again."
