- Engaging in risky sexual behavior, such as unprotected sex with multiple partners
- Having difficulty establishing and maintaining healthy relationships due to sexual behaviors
- Persistent sexual thoughts or fantasies that interfere with work, school, or other essential functions
- Engaging in sexual behaviors that are not aligned with one's values or beliefs

These behaviors can cause distress and interfere with daily life, relationships, and well-being.
Specialized Treatment for Sexual Offenders
At Alfrey and Pruitt Counseling, we offer specialized services to address problematic sexual behaviors, including treatment for sexual offenders. Our team of mental health practitioners, licensed alcohol and drug counselors, and certified sexual offender treatment specialists are equipped with the skills and knowledge to provide effective treatment.
Our services for sexual offenders include:
- Outpatient treatment as ordered by courts: We provide comprehensive outpatient treatment programs designed to address the specific needs of sexual offenders. These programs are often court-ordered and aim to reduce the risk of reoffending.
- Assistance with sexual offender registry: For individuals with 15 years on the registry, we assist in reducing it to 10 years after receiving treatment. This service is part of our commitment to helping individuals reintegrate into society after completing their treatment.
- Sex offender risk evaluations for the courts: We conduct thorough risk evaluations to assess the reoffending risk. These evaluations are crucial in informing court decisions and ensuring the community's safety.
- Collaboration with probation or parole officers: We work with the client and their officer to complete their probation or parole. This collaborative approach ensures that all parties work towards the same rehabilitation and community safety goal.
These specialized services are part of our commitment to providing comprehensive, effective treatment for individuals struggling with problematic sexual behaviors. Our goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where individuals can seek help and begin their journey toward recovery.
