(FY 2012) Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT)

The Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is accepting applications in support of funding for the Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for State 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 Residential Substance Abuse Treatment 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 prepare offenders for reintegration into communities, reducing recidivism and promoting public safety.
