Secure Evaluation and Therapeutic Treatment Program


People with intellectual disabilities may be arrested and charged with various crimes. Many of these people are committed to the Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DHMH) for evaluation and/or for care and treatment. Criminal Procedure Article, Title 3, outlines the provisions and the requirements for the courts and the DHMH.


The mission of the Secure Evaluation & Therapeutic Treatment (SETT) Program is to provide evaluation and assessment services, as well as active treatment to people with intellectual disabilities and court involvement within a secure and safe environment. In addition, direct case consultation and assistance is provided to both criminal justice and human services staff regarding people with intellectual disabilities involved with the criminal justice system.
