Sexual Offender Management Program

Therapeutic treatment for sexual offenders is a vital intervention which has been proven to reduce recidivism and the risk of re-offending. The goal of the Sex Offender Management Program (SOMP) at Child and Family Services is to provide participants with the tools they need to prevent further sexually abusive behaviors.

SOMP provides extensive risk assessments and group therapy for adult offenders, and risk assessment and individual therapy for juvenile offenders. The program collaborates with the court systems, Probation Departments in Western New York, as well as New York State Parole. SOMP also provides services for family members so that they may have the opportunity to deal with the impact of sexually offending behaviors, and support the treatment of the offender or sexually abusive youth.

Men, women and children, ages 12 years old and older may be referred to SOMP. Adult clients are required to be court mandated in order to participate. Referrals can be made by the Department of Social Services, courts, probation offices, other agencies, professionals or parents for adolescent clients. Most insurances will cover the cost of payment for adolescent clients. The only form of insurance that is accepted for adult clients is Medicaid. Please click here for more information on SOMP.
