We require the client attend sessions on a weekly basis in an individual or group setting which are facilitated by a trained professional. In treatment you will learn strategies, develop skills and get peer and professional support to manage and control thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are potentially harmful. If the client is an adolescent, his/her parents or guardians will be required to attend parent support groups, along with individual sessions as needed.
There are ground rules and agreements that all participants must follow in order to remain a member of the group. Many people are court ordered to sexual offender treatment but others may choose to go on their own. Treatment plans will include group/individual therapy, couples therapy. family therapy, polygraph (lie detector test), specialized testing and/or recommendation to further explore the need for prescribed medications.
