Juvenile Sex Offender Evaluations & Therapy

This service offers sex offender specific evaluations and treatment for youth who have been charged and/or adjudicated of sexual offenses to determine their propensity of sexual recidivism and providing appropriate treatment recommendations as needed for adolescents and pre-adolescents.

Adolescents, ages 12 to 17 who admit to a sexual offense, but who do not have a history of chronic sexual offenses or serious delinquency, are eligible for the program. Eligible adolescents must be free of serious substance abuse, psychosis, mental illness or retardation, and the family or guardian also must be available for participation in treatment.

Services include assessment, individual therapy and family therapy. Pre-adolescents, ages 6 to 12, receive assessment followed by individual and family psychotherapy.
