(d) Compliance with reduced restrictions;
(e) The absence of any incidents that may indicate relapse for a period of twelve months;
(f) An assessment by a qualified professional consistent with the division guidelines for risk assessment and psychosexual evaluations containing:

(ii) An opinion as to whether or not you can be managed successfully in a less restrictive community residential setting; and
(g) A recommendation as to suitable placement by the treatment team.
