The goal of the program is to reduce the risk of recidivism in adolescents who have engaged in this behavior and prevent further involvement in the juvenile justice system.

The program utilizes an evidence-based CBT model for group treatment. Training and consultation for the model is provided by the National Center on Sexual Behavior in Youth (NCSBY). Groups are conducted on Monday and Wednesday evenings which would be required hours for the intern(s).
