Default He Asked Me To Be His "Safety Net"

My friend is going through the 3rd & final step (stage? - I forget how they classify it) in the RDAP program. He is trying to prepare for life on the outside. Today he told me he was basically doing a cleaning of people in his life & trying to build a 'safety net' of people (?) When he gets out. He said that mean 'no enabling him & calling him on erroneous thinking & attitudes'. Seems simple enough, but I see some red flags. Can you all give me suggestions of what I should consider before agreeing to this? Is a 'safety net' a common term in the rdap program or rehab in general? I appreciate any insight!

Hi and welcome to PTO..
I wanted to give you some insight, and hope this will provide some.


A prisoner who completes Phase III—the final phase—of the Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP) should have obtained employability skills that will assist him in re-entry to society. He's expected to be able to distinguish realistic from unrealistic expectations, and to identify strategies for coping with thoughts, emotions and situations that increase his risk for recidivism and relapse. "Phase III is about transitions. It deals with job interview skills, creating a safety net, which is a support system of people to assist you from relapsing,"

It almost sounds something like a being a "Sponsor" You being a support system for him.
