No significant differences were found based on whether treatment was delivered by a criminal justice agency or other organization or whether treatment was delivered in an institution or in the community. To the extent possible, treatment settings for juveniles should also take into account the least restrictive alternative, proximity to the home and community, and family strengths and needs. Unfortunately, both studies were unable to draw firm conclusions about the treatment approaches they examined. The evidence-based approach has been specially adapted both for learning disability and for RDaSH, making it unique. While in treatment and on community supervision, each offender is provided with opportunities to continue to put the knowledge and skills as identified above into practice. Any contact with minors that is permitted by the court is monitored and managed by the CCO while the offender is under supervision. While offenders released directly to the community may have received outpatient treatment, sex offenders released to a halfway house were subjected to a more intensive level of treatment. First, while cognitive-behavioral treatment modalities yielded a significant reduction in sexual recidivism, other psychotherapeutic approaches did not. The Department of Corrections defines recidivism as "any felony offense committed by an offender within 36 months of release from prison which results in a readmission to prison. I get that now," Conner said. Many offenders must obtain psycho-sexual evaluations and treatment from state-certified sexual deviancy counselors. Both randomized controlled trials and highly rigorous quasi-experiments that employ equivalent treatment and comparison groups are needed. Contact with past and potential victims: Offenders also cannot have contact with magazines, videos, telephone sites or anything else with pornographic content. Sex and kidnapping offenders who are required by law to register must do so prior to leaving state, county or city confinement. Ideally, when making decisions about levels of care, the courts and other justice professionals will have the benefit of pre—sentence investigations and comprehensive psychosexual evaluations that specifically address risk and needs in a valid and reliable manner.
