Many young people with identified needs require more intensive and specialized treatment. Specialized residential treatment includes programs designed specifically for the treatment of serious violent offenders, sex offenders, chemically dependent offenders, offenders with mental health impairments, and offenders with mental retardation. Youth receive a comprehensive clinical assessment when first entering the TJJD system. From this assessment youth are matched their specialized treatment needs and each need is given a ranking and priority for addressing these needs. The Giddings State School operates a Capital and Serious Violent Offender Treatment Program for youths that are committed for murder, capital murder, and if the offense involved the use of a weapon or deadly force. The program helps these young people connect feelings associated with their violent behavior and to identify alternative ways to respond when faced with risky situations in the future.
The Mental Health Treatment of Female Children and Adolescent Sex Offenders project was funded by the Hogg Foundation in order to develop an understanding of the treatment provided to female juvenile sex offenders with the ultimate goal of developing a typology of young female sex offenders. This was a joint project with the Settlement Home. The survey responses revealed no specialized treatment tracts at the Texas residential treatment centers and none of the providers had a well-developed outpatient treatment program for females. Phase two of the study was made possible through a one year grant from the Hogg Foundation to expand the sample to explore treatment options on a national scope.
