  Annotation: This is an overview of the South Carolina Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) Program for State Prisoners.
Abstract: The South Carolina RSAT program is known as the Correctional Recovery Academy (CRA), operated by Civigenics, Inc., under contract with the South Carolina Department of Corrections. The CRA is a modified therapeutic community, using a cognitive behavioral approach with a projected length of stay between 8 and 12 months depending on client performance. It is designed to provide multi-modal substance abuse treatment in a residential setting for 17- to 27-year-old males sentenced under the Youthful Offender Act to an indeterminate sentence. The primary treatment methodologies used by the CRA include: (1) cognitive re-structuring towards pro-social, pro-deliberative norms; (2) cognitive-behavioral training toward relapse prevention and social reintegration; (3) social learning mechanisms of therapeutic communities; and (4) the spiritual community of a 12-steps fellowship.
