Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $340,333)

The Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice agrees to continue to support and prioritize focus on jail-based substance use disorder treatment programs with Utah’s RSAT funds, and to give priority consideration to funding programs in rural and tribal areas in compliance with this new requirement.  Jail-based RSAT programs will be required to adhere to the evidence-based substance use disorder treatment standards, certification requirements, and recovery/reentry support standards established for the Utah’s JRI.  In addition, in order to ensure that individuals who complete the jail-based RSAT program experience continuity of care when they are released from jail to the community, subgrantees will be required to establish a written agreement (e.g., MOA/MOU) with the Local Substance Abuse Authority (LSAA) agency in their area regarding the provision of reintegration and continuing care/recovery support services.  The goal of Utah’s FFY 2023 Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for State Prisoners (RSAT) Program is to increase access to and the effectiveness of substance use disorder treatment programs for individuals incarcerated in Utah’s county/tribal jails, giving priority consideration to rural and tribal areas, by funding evidence-based programs/ practices to successfully treat inmates’ substance use disorders and ensuring RSAT participants are linked to reintegration and continuing care/recovery support (aftercare) services following completion of treatment and release to the community.
