Sex Offender Program

Adventist HealthCare’s residential treatment program for adolescent male sex offenders offers a diagnosis and treatment of sexual behavior problems.

Our research-based protocols represent the latest scientific thinking about the etiologies and various manifestations of sexual behavior problems in adolescents. Our residential treatment program is holistic in design and recognizes that sexual behavior problems in adolescents are typically accompanied by an array of related psychopathologies, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder, and social anxiety disorder.

Residents explore the impact of their actions and learn to control their sexual behavior so they can successfully return to the community.
