There Is Hope for Youth Sex Offenders
when they receive intensive, multifaceted treatment that gets to the root cause of their behaviors
Cove Prep Treatment Facility for Adolescent Sexual Offenders
Cove PREP’s treatment philosophy is based on the belief that sexual offending results from a combination of biological, social, psychological and experiential factors. Sexual offenders are not all the same. Therefore, comprehensive assessment is required to develop an understanding the causes, contributing factors and what maintains each youth’s pattern of sexually abusive behaviors. Successful treatment is based on accurate diagnosis.
At Cove PREP, we provide services for each resident through a variety of treatment modalities:
- Cognitive-Behavioral treatment
- Process-Oriented (psychodynamic) treatment
- Psycho-educational treatment
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Psychiatric Care and Medication Management
Cove PREP does not utilize any aversive conditioning techniques. Polygraph testing is available for use on a case-by-case basis.
How Progress is Measured
Follow-up on successfully discharged residents currently occurs through contact with Probation Officers and through former residents phone or mail contact with the facility. To date, of more than 55 successfully discharged residents, we have identified three (3) youth or less than 5% that any have been arrested for a subsequent sexual offense.
