Safe Solutions

Our Safe Solutions track provides treatment for children who are at high risk for victimization. Intervention helps resolve trauma from the child’s own experiences. Children who do not get treatment are at high risk of re-victimization. Youth Home provides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for sexual behavior problems such as sexual reactivity, sexual abuse trauma, and engagement in extensive mutual sexual behavior.

Our Philosophy:

Sexually reactive children are also victims and need to learn age appropriate coping skills. Families and parents need support as well. Early evaluations and intervention can eliminate inappropriate sexual acting out. Treatment helps these children to have better relationships as they grow into adults.

Characteristics of sexually reactive adolescents and/or those with extensive mutual sexual behavior:

  • Behavior is a response to things going on around them or feelings which reawaken memories of painful or traumatic memories
  • Behavior is often not within the full conscious control of the child
  • Age inappropriate sexual acting out behavior
  • Excessive sex play or preoccupation
  • Mutual sexual contacts with others
  • Excessive masturbation
  • Child’s interest in sex overrides other activities
  • Sexual behavior continues even after intervention by parents or redirection
  • Child touches animals in a sexual way

This track is NOT acceptable for those who:

  • Use threats of harm, coercion, of bribery to keep the sexual acts a secret
  • Use violence, weapons, implements or objects during sexual acts
  • Use intimidating behavior
  • Use lies or manipulations to avoid the truth when confronted

Admission Criteria

  • 12 to 17 years of age
  • Sexual behavior problems including: sexual reactivity, sexual abuse trauma, and engagement in extensive mutual sexual behavior that requires an intensive psychiatric facility
