A.R.I.S.E. seeks to ensure that the supervision and mental health treatment to which its Client base is subjected is fair, humane and ethical. Moreover, A.R.I.S.E. will advocate for methods and modes of supervision and treatment that have been scientifically and empirically validated as effective in securing public safety and advancing Client recovery and rehabilitation, while avoiding harm to Clients and their families.
A.R.I.S.E. believes that the interests of society are not served by demonizing, devaluing, and dehumanizing A.R.I.S.E.’s Clients, but rather by promoting their reintegration into society as productive and law-abiding citizens. Nor does A.R.I.S.E. believe a desire to prevent future victimization of children justifies the victimization of Client’s families, especially minor children in those families, who are too often collateral damage of ineffective and counterproductive laws that do nothing to advance public safety.
A.R.I.S.E. is committed to advancing the human rights and dignity of all its Clients, in the service of protecting society’s interest in safety while recognizing the fundamental human rights to which all, including those convicted of sex and other criminal offenses, are entitled.
