Administrative Segregation Diversion Program

The mission of the Administrative Segregation Diversion Program is to provide an opportunity for repeat offenders returning to TDCJ supervision, who would be placed in administrative segregation housing due to their documented gang affiliations, to immediately engage in a process of renouncing their gang affiliation and thereby be placed in general population housing.

Program Overview

The Administrative Segregation Diversion Program (ASDP) is a method for allowing offenders returning to Texas Department of Criminal Justice custody an option to avoid placement in Administrative Segregation housing by allowing them an immediate opportunity to renounce their previously established gang affiliation immediately upon their return. This six (6) month, two (2) phase process incorporates components designed to use Cognitive Behavioral strategies to address areas including functional thinking, emotional management, establishing pro-social support networks, establishing positive beliefs and attitudes, goal setting, spirituality and addiction. Interventions utilize both in and out of cell, individual and group activities to expedite the re-socialization process.
