(FY 2015) Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT)

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is accepting applications in support of funding for the Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for Prisoners Program. The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, Pub. L. 103-322 provides funds to Virginia for substance abuse treatment programs in state and local correctional facilities.
The RSAT Grant Program assists Virginia in maintaining and enhancing substance abuse treatment programs for incarcerated offenders throughout the Commonwealth. The funding for these programs is utilized to provide evidence-based substance abuse treatment services in correctional settings to promote public safety by enhancing offender opportunities for living in the community without using alcohol or illegal drugs, preparing offenders for reintegration into communities and reducing recidivism.
