ASAP serves males between the age of 12 and 17 who have demonstrated some type of sexually aggressive or sexually abusive behavior towards others.
The length of stay ranges from 12-18 months. The treatment program focuses on reducing the risk of re-offense and to have each adolescent learn to understand and manager their sexual abusive behavior. A multidisciplinary treatment team works with each resident every 30 days to identify specific problem areas and develop objectives to assist in progressing through the recovery process.
The treatment philosophy includes a strong belief in a group therapy atmosphere and a core milieu of positive peer culture and cognitive behavioral therapy. Concepts of expectations, privileges and responsibilities help to provide safety and security. Specific emphasis is on working on victim empathy, health relationships, relapse prevention, denial, techniques to interrupt inappropriate arousal and taking full responsibilities for their offenses.
