Restoring hope with dignity

Adult Survivors of Sexual Abuse (18+)

The Joseph J. Peters Institute recognizes the hardships that can afflict adult survivors of sexual abuse. Our long history of providing caring, compassionate treatment, combined with our clinical expertise, allows us to help the people we serve progress from trauma to healing. At JJPI, we engage the individual and their significant others in a relational process to build understanding and trust, explain treatment methods, and work together to heal. JJPI offers individual therapy, group therapy and psychiatric care, as appropriate, to individuals suffering the effects of trauma as a result of sexual exploitation and/or other traumas. Adult survivors may also be encouraged to participate in group therapy. We offer several evidence-based treatments for adult survivors, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Prolonged Exposure Therapy.
