Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for State Prisoners (RSAT) Program


National Recovery Month (September)
National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) is a national observance that educates Americans on the fact that addiction treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life. The observance’s main focus is to laud the gains made by those in recovery from these conditions, just as we would those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover. Recovery Month, now in its 30th year, highlights individuals who have reclaimed their lives and are living happy and healthy lives in long-term recovery and also honors the prevention, treatment, and recovery service providers who make recovery possible. Recovery Month promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible, and also encourages citizens to take action to help expand and improve the availability of effective prevention, treatment, and recovery services for those in need.

Join BJA in celebrating the 30th anniversary of National Recovery Month. For more information on how to participate, visit the National Recovery Month website.

In the PMT, grantees can create a report that can be downloaded to a computer. The downloaded report can then be uploaded and submitted to BJA through GMS on a semi-annual basis. The semi-annual report is due by January 30 and July 30.

For questions regarding the PMT or performance measures, please call the BJA PMT help desk at 1-888-252-6867 or send an email.

Performance Measures
Starting with the January-June 2009 reporting period, RSAT performance measures are now collected quarterly through BJA's Performance Measurement Tool (PMT). Grantees will upload a PDF of their performance measures results from the PMT to the Grants Management System (GMS) on a semi-annual basis. The BJA PMT will support grantees' ability to identify, collect, and submit performance measures data for BJA grant awards. An assigned userID and password are needed to access the system. Please contact our partner, CSR, Inc., at the BJA PMT help desk at 1-888-252-6867 for more information.
