Welcome to our new site. It is a new look under an updated name from May 2013, and yet we are the same organization, seeking a restorative approach to sexual abuse for all parties involved.

The Board of CURE-SORT, and as we were previously known as Sex Abuse Treatment Alliance (SATA), held long discussions about our mission and objectives, and the path that we were following to accomplish them.

As a result of those discussions, we decided to change the name to CURE-SORT in recognition of our role as an issue chapter of International CURE, a long-time national prison reform organization, and our emphasis on treatment of those who display inappropriate sexual behavior and perform acts of illegal sexual behavior.

In making this decision, we realized that our presence on the Internet, which is the foremost place for individuals to seek information and assistance, the previous SATA-SORT website was not up to the standards that we expected.
