Meet Ascent 121






Each year Ascent 121 provides clinical recovery services for over a hundred central Indiana teens. We host awareness and professional development training for thousands of people in the community. Our work falls into several categories:

Survivor Services

Survivors of commercial sexual exploitation present with unique needs for clinical support where continuity is vital. Successful intervention requires both rapid and long-term interventions to help teens resist eloping or returning to their previous behavior. Much like domestic violence or substance abuse, relapse is an anticipated component of recovery.

Ascent 121 programs provide a continuum of care that allows clients to move back and forth between program settings throughout their treatment process. Our continuum utilizes a multi-phase treatment approach that can be provided in multiple settings, allowing us to provide comprehensive treatment in the least restrictive setting as determined by individual risk and need. Ascent 121 staff are equipped with specialized training and supervision by experts across the country. Our continuum is comprised of four components: assessment, community based therapy, residential programming and case management.

LIFT Consulting Services

There is a growing need for human service organizations to work together to address the complex needs of survivors. We launched LIFT to help bridge current service gaps and to assist other providers in tailoring their service provision to meet the unique needs of survivors. LIFT offerings include training, consulting, agency mentoring and our annual Build Beyond Conference for service providers.

Community Awareness

Ascent 121 offers opportunities throughout the year for members of the community to learn more about what trafficking looks like in Indiana and ways you can engage with our work. See our upcoming events and volunteer opportunities!
