Treatment For Adolescent Sexual Offenders

Cove PREP Treatment Facility for Adolescent Sexual Offenders

Cove PREP was founded in 1999 to serve the needs of adolescent males who have committed sexually abusive acts and who cannot safely be maintained in community settings. We provide care from a balanced perspective that addresses community protection with the need to provide comprehensive treatment for young men who commit sexual offenses. Accountability for one's actions is combined with comprehensive assessment and specialized interventions to work toward the goal of "No More Victims".

Cove PREP (Psychosexual Rehabilitation & Education Program) is located in Western Pennsylvania, approximately 45 miles east of Pittsburgh, PA. The facility is a secure, fenced facility that is located on the 300+ acre campus of Torrance State Hospital. Cove PREP is part of the White Deer Run/Cove Forge Behavioral Health System in Pennsylvania and part of the national network of programs operated by CRC Health System, Inc. Cove PREP is strongly committed to a multidisciplinary approach that addresses behavioral, educational, mental health, sexual acting out and family concerns. Treatment at Cove PREP begins with a thorough assessment of these areas to enable the Treatment Team to develop a plan of care specific to the needs of each youth. The facility has the security to protect the safety of individual residents and the community, but with a strong treatment focus.

Progress in treatment is measured by competency development. Youth are required to meet specific goals in order to advance in treatment. The length of time it takes different youth to accomplish these goals varies, but typically ranges from 12 to 28 months. To date, less than 5% of residents who have successfully completed the program have been arrested for a subsequent sexual offense.

Cove PREP is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare and is accredited by the JCAHO.
