The RDAP program is inside the prison not off-site. The inmates are under the care and supervision of the psychology department (they run the program).Read more
There is a program that has been in effect for 30 years called RDAP. Not all drug offenders are eligible, but those that are will get 12 months off their sentence and at least 6 months of halfway house. Those that are eligible need to have their position set before they go in during the Pre-Sentence Investigation. There are a few ex-cons that run websites that charge $5,000 - $10,000 for information on how to set yourself up before going in.Read more
There are several facilities specifically for sex offenders, the most notable is FCI Tuscon. The RDAP program might allow a non-violent sex offender with another layer of administrative scrutiny. Since we do not know the wording in the Judgment and Commitment Order, we don't want to give you false hope. Reasons for non-eligibility: Inmates not eligible for early release include those who have a prior felony or misdemeanor conviction for homicide, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, or child sexual abuse.Read more
FCI Jesup does have the Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP), which would reduce the length of an inmate's federal sentence by 12-months (plus 6 months of halfway house) if eligible. Eligibility begins and ends with the Pre-Sentence Report that is proffered to the judge prior to sentencing. If there is no mention of drug use or alcohol dependency or abuse in this report, there are no other options or appeals that will get the inmate into the program.Read more
RDAP is not available at every federal facility. Most of their detention centers do not have RDAP. In all likelihood, if your inmate is already applied and approved, they will transfer them to a facility that has the program when the inmate is at least 27 months from the door. The program is nine months, there is an automatic 6 months of halfway house (the released inmate must take additional classes during the halfway house stay call TDAP) - sinceRead more
There are no federal sentences that force an inmate into drug rehabilitation. Your inmate was NOT sentenced in federal court to do RDAP, if they get it it's great, but it's not a part of the sentence at all. It could be a recommendation but the Federal Bureau of Prisons makes all the decisions, the judge has nothing to do with it once they are property of the BOP. RDAP is voluntary, but if eligible, it is the only wayRead more
We would consider taking a substance abuse course in prison a "good thing". Judges can order the course be taken or the offender can be fortunate enough to be invited. These courses are more about behavior modification than treating an addiction. Everyone that is incarcerated SHOULD try to get into these course. In prison, getting illegal drugs is highly unlikely so most offenders are not in the middle of an addiction which makes taking the course even easier. Some facilities willRead more
There are drug classes available in the Alabama Department of Corrections, however they are not offered at every facility. If they apply for and are accepted into the program, they will be transferred to the location where the classes are taught.Read more
RDAP stands for the Residential Drug Abuse Program - it is a federal program only. Inmates that qualify for the program are eligible for up to 12 months off their sentence plus a guaranteed 6 months of halfway house. There are some state DOCs that offer a version of RDAP but we are not certain about the early release benefits of taking the course in Minnesota. Here is a link to their Inmate Handbook.Read more
Getting to the camp is what all federal inmates strive for - it's the easiest time to do in the BOP. All federal inmates follow the same guidelines for release. Good time is 15% of the sentence that is granted to the inmate when they report - all they can do is lose good time, they can't gain more good time. Their release date reflects doing 85% of the sentence. RDAP is the only real way to get an earlierRead more
