• Sex Offender Treatment and Evaluations

    Sex offender treatment is different than other therapies for adults. Treatment for people who have committed sexual offenses is a serious and encouraging process which focuses on learning specialized strategies for stopping abusive behavior, being accountable and taking responsibility for harm done. For the vast majority of those adults and juveniles who have committed a sexual offense, treatment significantly reduces the future risk of sexually abusing a child. Treatment does not offer amnesty or excuse abusive acts, nor is it intended to punish or humiliate participants. A central focus of treatment is to help an individual create a better life for him/herself by developing their strengths while managing risk. Specialized treatment is offered by therapists who specialize in working with adults and youth with sexual behavior problems.
