Clinical Victim Services
Survivors of commercial sexual exploitation present with unique needs for clinical support where continuity is vital. Successful intervention requires both rapid and long-term interventions to help the youth resist eloping or returning to their previous behavior. Much like domestic violence or substance abuse, relapse is an anticipated component of recovery. Ascent 121 programs provide a continuum of care that allows participants to move back and forth between program settings throughout their treatment process. Our continuum utilizes a multi-phase treatment approach that can be provided in multiple settings, allowing us to provide comprehensive treatment in the least restrictive setting as determined by individual risk and need. Ascent 121 staff are equipped with specialized training and supervision by experts across the country. Our continuum is comprised of four components: assessment, community based therapy, residential programming and aftercare support.
Advocacy and Awareness
Our community programs are designed to create social change and foster awareness of DMST. We engage activism in the community and grow a passionate constituency to fight the issue. Our staff and volunteers are available to provide educational materials and presentations.
