Sex Offender Evaluations and Programming for adults and adolescents, males and females. Although we primarily provide services to offenders on parole or probation, we also offer sex offender treatment to individuals without current legal involvement.

All applicants are accepted into the sex offender program unless they represent an imminent risk to others. Acceptance of responsibility is not necessary for admission, but progression through the program requires acknowledgement of responsibility. Individuals with cognitive limitations and mental illness are admitted to the program and provided with specialized services.

Upon admission, all participants must sign a treatment contract outlining rules and requirements, including limits of confidentiality. Violation of program rules may result in termination from the program. For legally involved individuals, monthly reports of progress in treatment are issued to probationsex-offender-evaluations and parole officers, as well as other concerned parties, such as judges, attorneys, and caseworkers, as needed.

All participants are initially assessed utilizing a sex offender specific interview and sex offender specific psychological instruments. This assessment is designed to determine among other issues:
• Level of dangerousness
• Likelihood of re-offending
• Ability to benefit from treatment
• Triggers for re-offending
• Specific needs
• Personality characteristics

Program Components Case management
