Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT)

 

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is accepting applications for the federal Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for Prisoners Grant Program. These RSAT grant funds will provide evidence-based residential Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) services in local and regional jails. MAT is the use of medications such as Buprenorphine, Methadone, or Naltrexone, coupled with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders. MAT is primarily used to treat addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates. More information on MAT can be found at https://www.samhsa.gov/medication- assisted-treatment/treatment.
