Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for Prisoners (RSAT)
CFDA: 16.593


The Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s, Office of Criminal Justice Grants (OCJG) is responsible for administering the Federal Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for State Prisoners Formula Grant Program (RSAT Program). The RSAT Program allows state and county correction facilities to re-examine the manner in which they provide substance abuse treatment to both males and females who are in the custody of the state.
The goal of the RSAT Program is to break the cycle of drugs and violence by reducing the demand for, use, and trafficking of illegal drugs. RSAT enhances the capability of states and units of local government to provide residential substance abuse treatment for incarcerated inmates; prepares offenders for their reintegration into the communities from which they came by incorporating reentry planning activities into treatment programs; and assists offenders and their communities through the reentry process.


RSAT funds may be used to implement two types of treatment programs within state and local correctional and detention facilities: 1) Residential, or 2) Jail-based Treatment. Residential Treatment programs are preferred over Jail-based Treatment programs.
Florida gives preference to applicants who provide aftercare services to program participants. Aftercare services must involve coordination between the correctional treatment program and other social service and rehabilitation programs, such as education, job training, parole supervision, halfway houses, self-help, and peer group programs. State correctional and local substance abuse treatment programs are encouraged to work together to place program participants in residential correctional facilities that meet the RSAT Program's primary requirements.
