Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $78,434)

The Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Formula Grant Program (RSAT) assists states and local governments in developing and implementing substance abuse treatment programs in state and local correctional and detention facilities. The RSAT Program also assists states and local governments in creating and maintaining community-based aftercare services for offenders who are released from institutionally based substance abuse programs. Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Formula Grant funds may be used to implement three types of programs. At least 10 percent of the total state allocation for FY 2009 shall be made available to local correctional and detention facilities (provided such facilities exist) for either residential substance abuse treatment programs or jail-based substance abuse treatment programs as defined below.

The Idaho State Police will use a portion of their FY 2009 RSAT funds to continue programming to fill a void with the Therapeutic Community (TC) Women's Aftercare program implemented by the Idaho Department of Corrections. The program will address female specific issues related to post release transition to society. The TC Aftercare program will target female offenders who have successfully completed the Striving Toward Active Recovery (STAR) Therapeutic Community at the South Boise Women's Correctional Center who will reside in the areas served by District 1 and District 4 Community Corrections. Several objectives for the program will be to provide the substance abusing offenders with increased programming and services while under the supervision of a probation or parole officer and to provide offenders with intense programming in a structured environment.
