Texas licensing requires we, as Licensed Sex Offender Treatment Providers, utilize the polygraph (lie detector) as component of treatment. Our experience has been that the polygraph is an effective tool to assist an individual in becoming and remaining honest through the treatment process. In order for treatment to be successful, thinking must change and that occurs over an extended period of time. Maintaining honesty for an extended period of time allows an individual to focus on issues of concern openly and achieve the ultimate success in the treatment process.
Anyone receiving “sex offender” treatment will be required to fulfill this requirement regardless of conviction or adjudication determination. Polygraphs are performed by licensed polygraph examiners not affiliated with OpenDoor.
