Grants to Montana government and tribal agencies to develop and implement substance abuse treatment programs in correctional facilities. Funding also supports the creation and maintenance of community-based aftercare services. Grants may be used for jail-based, residential, and aftercare programs that will prevent the cycle of alcohol use, drug use, and violence.

The Montana Board of Crime Control (MBCC) is soliciting proposals for the Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for State Prisoners Program to be funded by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance. The RSAT for State Prisoners Program assists state, local and tribal governments in the development and implementation of substance abuse treatment programs in state, local and tribal correctional and detention facilities, as well as in the creation and maintenance of community reintegration services for offenders.

The purpose of the RSAT for State Prisoners Program is to break the cycle of drug addiction and violence by reducing the demand for, use, and trafficking of illegal drugs. RSAT’s objectives are to enhance the capabilities of states and units of local and tribal government to provide residential substance abuse treatment for incarcerated inmates; prepare inmates for their reintegration into a community by incorporating reentry planning activities into treatment programs; and assist these offenders and their communities through the reentry process by delivering community-based treatment and other broad-based aftercare services.

Treatment practices and/or services are required to be evidence-based as shown through treatment outcomes that are consistent with the RSAT Program objectives.
