Reducing your prison sentence…
The 500-Hour Residential Drug Abuse Program, also known as RDAP, is a highly specialized program offered by the Bureau of Prisons. This is a Bureau of Prisons’ program which is of great benefit to inmates with a substance abuse problem whether it is drugs or alcohol. As an incentive for successfully taking and completing the program, the inmate may receive up to twelve (12) months off his sentence and up to six (6) months of halfway house confinement, depending upon his initial length of sentence. The final six months of the inmate’s sentence is spent in a halfway house rather than serving this time in prison. The net effect is to reduce the defendant’s institutional sentence by up to eighteen (18) months! Imagine eighteen (18) months less of institutional confinement. This is also in addition to any good conduct time earned.
Eligibility for the 500-Hour Residential Drug Abuse Program is determined by a variety of factors. The Pre-Sentencing Investigation and Report are two major factors used to determine eligibility. Other factors, just as important, are the Residential Drug Abuse Program Eligibility Interview and the RDAP Eligibility Assessment & Positioning (REAPP) Paper provided by PCG to every client. The inmate must meet the diagnostic criteria for substance abuse or dependence indicated in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, (DSM-IV). In addition, the psychology services staff plays an important role in the determination of eligibility of the inmate. PCG is an expert in positioning its clients to take advantage of all the programs that the Bureau of Prisons offers including the 500-Hour Residential Drug Abuse Program.
