Sex Offender Service: The Sex Offender Service provides treatment for patients who have a history of sexually deviant behavior. The population includes individuals identified as convicted sex offenders serving sentences through the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services and those individuals who have been committed under an inpatient mental health board order for sex offender treatment. In addition, a transition program works to gradually release the patients with appropriate safeguards to allow patients the opportunity to successfully return to the community.
Whitehall Campus: (Brochure)
The Whitehall Campus at LRC addresses the treatment needs of male adolescents who have offended sexually.
There are residential and treatment group home levels of care.
Each youth has his own room. The program is family-centered and has its own school on the campus.
Youth who complete treatment at Whitehall have a low incidence of reoffending sexually based on an independent study that followed the youth over seven years from completion of treatment.
The Lincoln Regional Center’s scenic 107 acre campus is also the site of a State Arboretum with over 400 species of plants and trees. Nature paths and extensive wildlife help create a peaceful environment for care and treatment.
