Our mission is to provide sex offenders, sex addicts and sexually abusive persons with a Model Plan to stop victimizing behaviors and cycles of sexual abuse. The Plan accomplishes this by teaching offenders how to create a personalized comprehensive life changing Relapse Prevention Plan which becomes their LifeAfter Management Plan.
Coupling a "Confidant" with an "Offender" creates a safe environment to share and evaluate information.

Confidants will also assist in implementing the offender's finalized LifeAfter Management Plan.
The offender is taught to recognize their "Cycle of Abuse" and its subtle phases, and what "Triggers It," if it occurs in the future. The offender is taught to resolve issues of their past life, as these may lead to setting off triggers, then lead into their cycle of abuse. The plan goes beyond purely sexual issues..
The offender is shown that their cycle of abuse is not a spontaneous event in time, but instead, a series of acts and events, and seemingly unimportant decisions which set them up for failure! The offender is taught to recognize subtle pre-offense urges, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and "high-risk" circumstances, and how to develop "personal restrictions" and "interventions" to thwart these subtle paths which can lead into their cycle of abuse.
Finally, the offender is reminded that they can be a productive member of society and needs to resolve personal issues related to "Self-Esteem" and develop skills to enhance, balance, and refocus their lifestyle as part of their final LifeAfter Management Plan.
