I know there is a such thing, but i have no clue where it is or how long a bed wait is. My boyfriend is supposed to go after his time in Emanuel PDC, and i was wondering if anyone had any info on this. Thanks
An RSAT is a six-month residential substance abuse treatment program which targets high risk, high needs offenders with a history of substance abuse. This program is based on the Therapeutic Community Model. The Therapeutic Community Model has proven to be an effective form of treatment for substance abusers. The design is specific to the needs and dynamic risk factors commonly associated with substance abusers. The primary goal is for program participants to learn real-life ways to help them live a pro-social, productive life free of alcohol and other drugs and crime. Communities are formed when individuals and family groups join for mutual advantage, to protect against common enemies, and to organize to reach common goals. Individuals believe that their purpose can be achieved more effectively as a group than separately. In substance abuse TCs, the common enemy is the addiction, addictive thinking, and the criminal addictive lifestyle. The common goal is pro-social change."Offenders who are referred to RSAT are parole mandated and have a Texas Christian University Drug Screen (TCUDS) score of three (3) or higher. Program Sites: Coastal SP, Johnson SP, Pulaski SP, and Valdosta SP.
