Welcome to VCBR
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.
VCBR is committed to changing the Commonwealth and the lives of our residents through a comprehensive treatment program that lowers the re-offense risk of our population to the lowest level possible; providing an invaluable service to the communities of Virginia.

Location: The program is located in Nottoway County. The 28 acre site is located adjacent to Piedmont Geriatric Hospital between U.S. 360 and U.S. 460.
