A program evaluation of Sharper Future’s Substance Abuse Services Coordinating Agency (SASCA) sex offender treatment program was conducted in order to ascertain whether the program is meeting its treatment goals as outlined by the SASCA contract and Sharper Future program goals. The participants of this evaluation were 248 past male Sharper Future clients who had been mandated to treatment at the Sharper Future facilities and were funded by the SASCA program. The data used in this program evaluation was archival, as it existed in the clients’ file as supplied by the Sharper Future clinics that run a SASCA treatment program. The participants were those who have either completed the Sharper Future SASCA program or were dismissed for various reasons and were no longer enrolled in the program at the time of this evaluation. The site locations that both conducted a SASCA program and participated in the evaluation were San Diego, Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire Sharper Future clinics.
