Pathways & North Star
Both are clear, simple, and concise interactive studies for those who are willing to step into personal transformation. The difference between the two studies is that Pathways was created for individuals convicted of PC 290 related offenses. The curriculum is specific with case studies and assignments for sexual addiction and offending. North Star addresses criminal addiction and behavior. North Star was created for crimes other than PC 290 related offenses. Both programs address the following areas from their created perspective:
Understanding Sexual Addiction and Offending (Pathways)
Understanding Criminal Addiction and Behavior (North Star)
Responsibility, Acceptance, and Accountability

Apex Transcript and/or Comprehensive Risk Assessment Review
A review of these documents by our staff can assist an individual in gaining insight into their presentation at his/her last BPH hearing or Psychological Evaluation. These documents are thoroughly critiqued by our counselors and returned to the individual. Many times having an outside perspective has shed light toward a new understanding that has led to a suitable finding for the individual.
Upon completion, the Letter of Completion, Certificate of Completion, and Grade Report can be dispersed to the Board of Parole Hearings, Correctional Counselor, or other receiving party. The original documents sent to the participant are free of charge. If this service is ordered, a second or third letter and certificate will be created and sent to the desired party(ies). If a request is made to email the documents to a BPH attorney, no charge will be assessed.
Ultimately, being found suitable at the BPH is up to the individual. There is no amount of work that anyone else can do that will guarantee a finding of suitability. We do our best to prepare each person for their opportunity; there are no guarantees. It is in the best interest of the individual to do everything they can to be prepared. It is our position to assist them down that path.
Family consulting consists of providing information and answering questions for the following topics (but not limited to): parole, special conditions, GPS monitoring, sex offender programming, transitional housing, and Board of Prison Hearings.
Board of Parole Hearing Packet Construction and Review
We will assist in formatting the packet itself, contents of the packet, and contents of the material therein. We review material such as, Remorse Letters, Parole Plans, Victim Statements, Closing Statement, etc. We want to ensure that what is placed in the packet is appropriately written and covers the vital areas that the commissioners deem necessary. We will critique the materials and make recommendations that we believe will be more appropriate.
