Garden State Youth Correctional Facility Additional information:
The Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center (ADTC) currently houses approximately 700 sexual offenders who are involved in sex offender treatment, educational and vocational studies and hold numerous work positions within the institution. In 1999, the Sexually Violent Predator Act was enacted to civilly commit those sex offenders who were still considered sexually dangerous even after completion of their criminal sentence. These inmates were remanded by court order to a Special Treatment Unit jointly operated by the New Jersey Department of Corrections and the Department of Human Services. The NJDOC was placed in charge of security, and the Department of Human Services supervises treatment services.
No time limit unless space availability is limited.
