Our ACPTC  provides for the civil commitment of people who have a mental disorder that predisposes a person to commit sexual acts that pose a danger to the health and safety of others (A.R.S. § 36-3701, et. seq.).  The mission of the center is to provide therapy to those individuals who have been civilly committed- with the goal of reintegrating them into the community if they successfully complete the treatment program and show that their presence in the community doesn’t pose a risk to public safety.  Here’s a link to an interesting AP budget story this week regarding facilities like our ACPTC.
