Sex offenders enter the program under court commitment, often when they have completed a prison sentence but are considered unsafe for release. They are considered patients and not prisoners.

The program does not allow sexual activity and there are no conjugal arrangements for clients married to people outside the program.

Barry said that some sex-offender clients room together but that the agency will have to sort through those arrangements as they relate to offenders if they marry.

“It’s a different set of questions of whether clients can live together,” she said.
