Conditional Releases to SCTFs

A Secure Community Transition Facility (SCTF) is a structured and closely supervised community residential program that provides community protection and an appropriate environment where conditionally released SCC residents can continue treatment, learn appropriate life skills, and make a successful transition to community living while being closely monitored.

As required by state law, individuals whom state courts have found to be ready for conditional release have the right to live in community settings that are less restrictive than total confinement and to receive mental health treatment.

SCTFs are needed because many SCC residents do not have the personal or family resources necessary to provide the level of support and supervision required for successful conditional release or less restrictive alternative.
