Restoring hope with dignity
survivors gs


Since 1955, for over sixty years, The Joseph J. Peters Institute has been helping to keep our community safe by successfully treating individuals with sexual behavior problems and/or a history of conviction for sexual offenses. More recently, we have expanded the services we provide in our Safety & Responsibility (SRP) program through treatment of individuals who have engaged in interpersonal violence. These services are provided at our 1211 Chestnut Street location in Center City Philadelphia.

 JJPI also has a long history of treating the entire cycle of sexual abuse by providing treatment and support for survivors. We now treat survivors of sexual abuse and other traumas at our Survivor Services program, which is located at 100 South Broad Street in Center City Philadelphia. In our Survivor Services program, we recognize that true healing begins when an individual finds hope. We work to build that hope through trusted relationships between individuals and clinicians and through the provision of evidence-based expert clinical care.
