The SEX OFFENDER TREATMENT PROGRAM
WELCOME TO The SEX OFFENDER TREATMENT PROGRAM
The SEX OFFENDER TREATMENT PROGRAM provides individualized treatment for Male and Female, Juvenile and Adult, sex offenders. It follows the guidelines for treatment of sex offenders and uses the CONTAINMENT MODEL as established by the California Coalition on Sexual Offending. www.ccoso.org.
OFFENDING behavior includes: child molestation; voyeurism; exhibitionism; frotteurism; public masturbation or lewd acts; rape and sexual assault; child pornography; obscene phone calls/letters; violations of professional boundaries; sexual harassment.
The Treatment Modality focuses on INDIVIDUAL and FAMILY therapy. Therapy sessions are held weekly (45-50 minutes) with the patient. The FAMILY component, with or without the patient present is held, when indicated, within the context of the patient’s individual treatment plan. Integration of the sex offender into the family is done according to the guidelines set forth in CCOSO’s Position Paper on Family Resolution. The duration of treatment is established by the patient’s referring agency.
The GOALS of treatment are:
- Increased community safety through reduced risk of re-offenses.
- Reparations to victim(s) and community.
- Improved capacity for a responsible lifestyle and healthier relationships.
