Who We Are?
Choices, Child and Adolescent Services is a residential and day treatment program that provides assessment, stabilization, and therapeutic interventions for adolescent males with problematic sexual behaviour between the ages of 12 and 18. Treatment is based on the fundamental view that individual success can be achieved through specialized programming that addresses the young person’s developmental needs, cognitive level, and style of learning.
Choices, Child and Adolescent Services has adopted a holistic approach to the treatment of youth with sexually problematic behaviours. We offer a combination of individual, group, and family therapy along with specialized academic programming and skills training. Our philosophy is that sexual abuse is a symptom of dysfunction in a child or youth’s life. As a result, the child or youth must develop an understanding of their behaviour patterns, and learn socially acceptable ways of coping, and relating to others. Our goal is to empower youth to lead non-abusive lives by providing learning experiences that will help them develop healthy attitudes about themselves, their families and their communities.
Choices, Child and Adolescent Services adheres to the regulations of the Child and Family Services Act of the province of Ontario and is licensed by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services. Our program is highly monitored and staff secure. Our treatment model provides for community safety in a homelike environment.
