We live in a society where the backgrounds, history and behaviors of individuals, who have previously committed sexual offenses, often, result in stigma, fear and unfair treatment. Understanding these dynamics, we work not only to meet each individual's treatment needs, but also to use our resources and reputation to educate the law enforcement, judicial and healthcare sectors, as well as the greater community.

The Institute provides consultation, expert testimony and training to these sectors on the local, state and national levels. The goal of treatment at the Institute for Sexual Wellness is to create safer communities by decreasing sex offender recidivism.
