DOSE Client Story

Just a little insight into the impact that our services has made onto our clients. Our staff, interns, and volunteers work endlessly to provide quality service and assistance to the triangle community. The following is a letter that was written from one of our clients to Triangle Family Services.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to express my sincerest thanks to Triangle Family Services and to
share as a testimony to my successful completion of the DOSE program.

One year ago, I found myself in a situation that I never thought that I will find myself
in. I had slapped my wife of 11 years for the first time in the face out of rage. I was
then ordered by the court to attend the DOSE program. The tools that I learned by the
instructors have been extremely helpful in my day to day life.

I have learned multiple techniques such as “I statements, cool downs, time outs,
communication tools, ABC’s, listening skills, trigger points etc…” It has been a blessing
to learn and master these techniques.

It has been a difficult year due to my separation and life adjustment. However, my
instructors continued to encourage us by reminding us that we have options. It’s amazing
how I am able to handle myself during situations that once use to trigger a negative
outburst. My wife has not made this separation easy for me. I have been doing my all to
gain her trust and relationship back. We have not made any progress in our relationship
but not once this year have I reacted negatively through verbal, physical, or emotional
abuse. I am able to process the situation instantly, think of the outcome or consequence,
and then respond in a positive manner or wait until the appropriate time to response.

I am not a certify instructor or counselor in social interaction with others but I find
myself on many occasions advising peers and young boys I mentor when it comes to
relationships, communication, and how to respond to certain situations all because of
the knowledge that I have gained through the DOSE program. Feel free to contact me if
you will like for me to share my testimony with a DOSE group or your board of trustees.
Again I want to thank the friendly and helpful staff at Triangle Family Services.
