Absent this documentation in the report, it is very difficult to get the program. The judge's recommendation is not strong enough alone to coax the BOP to veer from their strict policy. Completing the program gets the inmate 12 months off their sentence and guaranteed six months...

RDAP is absolutely FREE to the federal inmates.  It is a great program and one that if completed will give the inmate one year off their sentence plus a guaranteed six months of halfway house.
