Sexual Offender Treatment Program

Sexual assault crosses all ages, gender, race, ethnicity and economic backgrounds.


Program Overview

Our Juvenile Sex Offender Specific Treatment Services are provided by our Certified Sexual Offender Treatment Specialists. Our SOTP utilizes Pathways Fourth Edition in the treatment of sexually aggressive youth. Pathways is written for both adolescent boys and girls, and is appropriate for both adjudicated and non-adjudicated clients with a wide variety of sexual behavior problems. Pathways Fourth Edition reflects current research and clinical experience with adolescents by focusing on strength-based methods to help clients develop healthy and productive lifestyles consistent with the Good Lives Model of rehabilitation. Pathways continues to use a restorative justice theme emphasizing concern for restitution, development of victim empathy and personal responsibility. Focus is shifted from the offense cycle into understanding.
