Annotation: This Biannual Grantee Feedback Report for April-September 2015 presents grantee performance data for the Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) Program funded under the Second Chance Act (SCA), which authorizes funding for services and programs by States, local governments, and tribal entities for persons reentering communities after incarceration.
Abstract: The RSAT program is funded under the SCA in order to ensure that incarcerated persons with substance-use disorders receive substance abuse treatment prior to and after their release. Compared to the period April-September 2014, enrollment in jail, residential, and aftercare programs decreased in the period April-September 2015. The completion rates for jail substance abuse treatment programs decreased slightly, from 74 percent to 72 percent, and residential program completion rates remained at 64 percent. The number of participants assessed as high risk in both jail and residential prison programs declined. Residential-based programs were operational in 21 States, and jail-based programs were operational in 30 States. Aftercare programs were in 11 States. 14 tables and 9 figures
