Special Commitment Program - Dept of Social and Health Services

RCW 71.09

The Special Commitment Center (SCC) program of the Behavioral Health Administration (BHA) was established under the authority of Chapter 71.09 RCW, the Community Protection Act, to provide for the detainment and civil commitment of persons found to meet the statutory definition of a sexually violent predator. SCC strives to provide rehabilitation services for residents, create pathways for their future, and maintain community safety. The SCC operates the Total Confinement Facility on McNeil Island for up to 300 residents, and two less-restrictive residential facilities called Secure Community Transition Facilities (SCTF). The SCTFs house up to 30 SCC residents who have progressed in treatment and have received court-ordered conditional releases to less-restrictive alternative placements. The two SCTFs are located on McNeil Island and in Seattle. The SCC also has case management responsibilities for SCC residents who have received court-ordered conditional releases to their family homes or a contracted 24-hour supervised residential program.
