Who We Are

Leo A. Hoffmann Center (LAHC) is a nonprofit corporation residential treatment facility for children and adolescent boys ages 11-18. The program design draws from a myriad of theoretical and multimodal approaches. The program utilizes a holistic and strength-based approach that promotes personal growth and development in relationships, development of cognitive strategies in dealing with thinking errors, and ways to reduce and manage risk from future offending. The program, by design, is comprehensive and addresses all areas of adolescent’s lives and includes emotional development, cognitive restructuring, behavior management, building pro-social skills, understanding of the cycle of behavior, relapse prevention and targeting risk behaviors. Hoffmann Center strives to use the most up-to-date methods, techniques, and interventions available to assist clients in developing and learning more appropriate coping methodologies.

A treatment principle at Hoffmann Center revolves around a client-centered and family based approach. Hoffmann Center re-creates a homelike atmosphere with a positive community structured therapeutic milieu that offers clients an opportunity to demonstrate appropriate behavior changes, self-regulation and values reassessment. The primary goal is reduce the child or adolescent's risk of re-offending and to have each client understand and control their sexual acting out behavior.
