The Virginia Center for Behavioral Rehabilitation (VCBR) was opened in 2003. Operated by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), it provides a secure environment for the treatment of adults deemed to be Sexually Violent Predators. Residents of VCBR are former DOC inmates who have undergone a rigorous selection, evaluation and civil commitment process, and who are determined by a court to present a significant risk for sexually reoffending. VCBR residents undergo intensive treatment aimed at reducing their risk so that they can be returned to the community, where they will be closely supervised
The Virginia Center for Behavioral Rehabilitation (VCBR) will be a model treatment facility of sexually violent predators in the nation.
