The Daytona Residential Treatment Facility serves 30 males, ages 13 to 20, who have been adjudicated to a high-risk, sex offender treatment program. Program youth receive individual and family therapy, as well as daily group services.
The primary curriculum at the facility follows a specialized model called STEPS of Progress, which incorporates the main treatment tasks identified by treatment providers as important when working with adolescent sexual offenders. The program goals are to increase the youth’s problem solving skills, teach anger management and coping skills, increase the youth’s insight and healthy regulation of sexual thinking and behavior, assist youth with identification of strengths and weaknesses, increase the youth’s understanding of resources to access, stabilize mood and impulse control, educate youth regarding medication management, and improve the overall level of functioning to return to the community.
The anticipated average length of stay depends on the youth's pace of success in completing the individualized treatment plan and goals. Clothing and uniforms are provided by the program.
