Residential Drug Abuse Program (R.D.A.P.) FBOP Institutions Facilities List

The Residential Drug Abuse Program, or, RDAP is mentored by the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP) to help an inmate with substance abuse problems learn to quit their addiction. Basically, as a federal Inmate with a history (history can be any amount of time) of drug or alcohol abuse within the last twelve (12) months prior to your sentencing you are eligible to receive up to a twelve (12) month reduction of your sentence and possibly a six (6) month placement in a halfway house, community corrections center.

The information about your drug or alcohol addiction must be listed on your PSI (Pre-Sentencing Investigation) Report in the Substance Abuse section. Drugs can be deemed legally prescribed or "illegal" just be honest and truthful on your report. There are other rules that have to be followed so you should consult with your attorney or PSI counselor about this.

28 Code Federal Regulations § 550.58

RDAP Early Release Eligibility: An inmate sentenced to a term of imprisonment pursuant to the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 227, Subchapter D for nonviolent offenses, who is determined to have a substance abuse problem, and successfully completes a residential drug abuse treatment program during his current commitment may be eligible, in accordance with paragraph (a) of this section, for early release by a period not to exceed 12 months.

A) Generally: Any prisoner who, in the judgment of the Director of the Bureau of Prisons, has successfully completed a program of residential substance abuse treatment provided under paragraph (1) of this subsection, shall remain in the custody of the Bureau under such conditions as the BOP deems appropriate. If the conditions of confinement are different from those the prisoner would have experienced absent successful completion of the treatment, the BOP shall periodically test the prisoner for substance abuse and discontinue such conditions on determining that substance abuse has recurred.

B) Period of Custody: The period a prisoner convicted of a nonviolent offense remains in custody after successfully completing a treatment program may be reduced by the Bureau of Prisons, but such reduction "may not be more than one year from the term the prisoner must otherwise serve."
