RSAT programs provide individual and group treatment activities for offenders and must:

  • Be provided in residential treatment facilities set apart from the general correctional population. 
  • Focus on the substance abuse problems of the inmate. 
  • Develop the person's cognitive, behavioral, social, vocational, and other skills. The goal is to solve substance use disorders and related problems.
