Program Description
The RSAT for State Prisoners Program assists state, local, and tribal governments in the development and implementation of substance abuse treatment programs in state, local, and tribal correctional and detention facilities as well as in the creation and maintenance of community reintegration services for offenders.

Objectives and Deliverables
The purpose of the RSAT for State Prisoners Program is to break the cycle of drug addiction and violence by reducing the demand for, use, and trafficking of illegal drugs. RSAT’s objectives are to enhance the capabilities of states and units of local and tribal governments to provide residential substance abuse treatment for incarcerated inmates; prepare inmates for their reintegration into a community by incorporating reentry planning activities into treatment programs; and assist these offenders and their communities through the reentry process by delivering community-based treatment and other broad-based aftercare services.

RSAT Program funds may be used to implement three types of programs: residential, jail-based, and aftercare. Applications involving partnerships with community-based substance abuse treatment programs will be given priority consideration.

Eligible Program Participants
Eligible applicants are state and local correctional and detention facilities of Arkansas. Applicants must have the capacity and capability of housing program participants in facilities that are segregated from the general population and provide 25% match non-federal.  The substance abuse treatment services must be evidence-based and provided by a licensed treatment program entity and/or certified licensed treatment staff.
