Getting Treatment: Juvenile Sex Offenders

“If only I had known about this program sooner….”

Unfortunately, many worthwhile programs are sometimes hard to find and the youth and families who could benefit from their services, well, oftentimes they don’t. I just learned about this free local program to treat juvenile sex offenders and hopefully this will help a family looking online for this type of service.

The Center for Family Development is a non-profit offering free therapeutic services to juveniles enrolled in the Choices Program. They serve youth who have already been charged. An estimated one-fifth of all sexual offenses committed in the United States each year are done by juveniles. 

Treatment is tailored to each client’s need, including long-term or short-term therapy.

Treatment Focus:
• Individual, Group and Family Therapy
• Accountability
• Self-esteem
• Emotional and self-regulation
• Anger management
• Coping skills
• Boundaries
• Social skills
• Empathy
• Healthy sexuality
• Healthy relationships
• Understanding of cycles and triggers
• Identify, interrupt and control unhealthy or inappropriate arousals, thoughts, and fantasies
• Relapse Prevention
