This program helps youth to avoid court involvement through supportive
services to the individual and family.
The First Time Offenders
program targets youth at risk for prosecution after a first instance of
juvenile delinquency. The program is provided by staff of Lad Lake,
Inc., residential treatment center located in Dousman, WI.
The program features parent education, in-home therapy, behavior
management, family education, gang awareness, awareness of alcohol and
other drug abuse, and education in alternatives to violence. Some of
these services are provided through one-on-one interaction, and some
through peer groups.
