Sexual Abuse Treatment Program
Sexual Abuse Treatment Program is designed to address the systemic needs of sexual offenders, victims and non-offending parents through comprehensive group therapy.
Community-Based Sex Offender Treatment
There are hundreds of registered sex offenders living in the Fox Valley. This treatment group aims to change sex offender’s deviant thoughts and behaviors, address areas of trauma for healing and develop a plan for their future wellness. Recidivism studies show only a 7% re-offense rate over 15 years after completing Reach’s treatment program, making it one of the most successful in Wisconsin. Program referrals come through the Department of Corrections, prosecutors and judges.
Connections for Family Safety
Sex offenders are masterful manipulators. Reach provides Connections for Family Safety, a 24-week educational/therapy group for women to understand sex offender’s psyche, including thought processes and behaviors. Members address relationship dynamics, protective behaviors and safety plans to protect themselves and their children.
Child and Adolescent Treatment Groups
This 10-week children’s therapy group focuses on expressive therapies (such as play and art therapies), stories and sharing to help children work through the trauma of their abuse.
Adolescents are high risk for becoming sexual violence victims. The adolescent therapy group helps teens explore feelings and beliefs around their sexual victimization and trauma in a safe environment.
Family Therapy/Safety Planning
This program is for sex offenders and their families to experience both individual healing and healing as a unit. Family therapy is aimed at clarifying individual areas of responsibility for maintaining a healthy home environment. Safety planning encompasses privacy and boundary rules for the home and appropriate interventions for potential high-risk situations.
