Child Sexual Abuse Treatment Program

In the early 1980’s, Hope Horizon Mental Health recognized there was a lack of available resources for families impacted by sexual abuse, and began developing a strong treatment program that is now available throughout Tulare County. With sites located in Tulare, Visalia, Earlimart, Porterville, Lindsay, Exeter, Woodlake, and Dinuba, Hope Horizon Mental Health offers a highly dedicated group of therapists, specifically trained in the best practices of Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Hope Horizon Mental Health’s Healthy Boundaries program provides individual, family and group therapies for child victims, their non-offending caregivers and other family members struggling with the impact the abuse has had on the victim and family. Additionally, under this program Hope Horizon Mental Health has the only Adolescent Sexual Responsibility Program (ASRP) in the County to provide treatment for minors who have engaged in inappropriate sexual behaviors.

Adolescent Sexual Responsibility Program (ASRP)

The Adolescent Sexual Responsibility Program reaches adolescents who have committed a sexual offense or who have significantly crossed a boundary in a sexual manner. We take the opportunity to use a therapeutic approach to help the youth to understand the choice that they made thoughts leading up to the choice, as well as the consequences and potential consequences. We assist in learning healthy ways to get needs met and to connect with others in an appropriate manner. There is an individual treatment approach as well as a group approach within this specialized program. The goal is to reduce risk factors to the community through psychoeducation and personal awareness.

Sexual Responsibility Program (SRP)

The Sexual Responsibility Program is a contracted service with Child Welfare Services for adults who have been alleged to have abused a child and have not been adjudicated. We assist these individuals in understanding healthy boundaries, as well as safety planning for their families. The specialized therapist is in close communication with the Child Welfare social worker as to the risk factors and completion of this program. The goal is to reduce risk factors to the community through psychoeducation and personal awareness.
