  Annotation: This is the final report on the national evaluation of the Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for State Prisoners Program from onset to midpoint.
  Abstract: The RSAT formula grant funds were designed by Congress to be used to implement residential substance abuse programs providing individual and group treatment for inmates in residential facilities operated by State and local correctional agencies. The 50 States, the five Territories and the District of Columbia have each generated plans for at least one RSAT program. Forty-seven states have RSAT programs (a total of 70) that have actually begun admitting clients. Approximately 7,700 clients are currently in RSAT programs; more than 3,600 clients have successfully completed RSAT programs. The report discusses: (1) the main RSAT treatment approaches (therapeutic community, cognitive-behavioral, 12-step); (2) RSAT accomplishment data by state; (3) research methods; (4) analysis of the National Survey information; (5) RSAT States and Territories with limited information; and (6) important considerations such as delays, gender, age, treatment in jail, aftercare and continuity of treatment, and combining treatment approaches.
