Sex Offender Treatment Program
“I realize that it’s hard to talk about what brought you to One Hope, but it’s extremely important that you’re honest and hold nothing back. It’s easy to talk about what you did that’s a matter of public record. It’s much harder, though, to talk about why you did it, and that’s the most important part. Realizing why you made your choices will go a long way in making sure you don’t reoffend.” – Former Client
The Sex Offender Treatment Program is a specialized, outpatient program that offers a comprehensive psychosexual evaluation and on-going individual, family, and group therapy. The therapists function as part of the larger containment team. Because referrals come primarily from the court system, staff work closely with probation and parole staff and report to the court as needed. Family involvement in the treatment process is strongly encouraged. This program operates in Kane County.
Promoting Accountability and Reducing Risk
Sexual abuse often leaves families facing many questions and devastating emotions. To help families through this difficult time, One Hope United’s specialized and licensed therapists provide evaluation and treatment for adults who have been accused of or have committed a sexual offense. Psychosexual evaluations are comprehensive and take into account the client’s life experiences and strengths. Our model emphasizes the importance of keeping families involved and safe.
