RULE §810.153Tiered Treatment and Supervision Program

The office shall determine the conditions of supervision and treatment for persons committed under this chapter.

  (1) The office shall develop a tiered program policy for the supervision and treatment of a committed person. The tiered program shall provide for the seamless transition of a committed person from a total confinement facility to less restrictive housing and supervision and eventually release based on the person’s behavior and progress in treatment.

  (2) The policy regarding the movement of committed persons between programming tiers shall be in accordance with Chapter 841 of the Texas Health and Safety Code. The office shall take into account the committed person’s individual treatment plan and behavior in movement through programming tiers. A committed person shall be required to meet the tasks and targets of the person’s current programming tier and demonstrate that the person has internalized the concepts of the current programming tier prior to movement to the next programming tier. A committed person who demonstrates a regression in treatment or behavior may be reduced in tier levels.

  (3) The office shall enter into appropriate contracts or memoranda of understanding for the provision of any necessary supervised housing and other related services and may enter into appropriate contracts for medical and mental health services and sex offender treatment.
