Title of Presentation: Recent Updates to the RSAT Promising Practices Guidelines
Description: The Promising Practices Guidelines for Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (PPGs for RSAT) were first published in November 2017 based upon research in the field of substance use disorder treatment and correctional programming. In 2019, the Bureau of Justice Assistance launched a national program to assess RSAT program adherence to these guidelines. These Fidelity Assessments are currently underway to determine the strengths as well as the training and technical assistance needs of RSAT programs and grantees.

The PPGs for RSAT was meant to be a dynamic document that would be revised as more outcomes and feedback from jails, prisons, and aftercare programs were obtained. In January 2021, a revised manual was published to assist correctional administrators and practitioners to establish and maintain RSAT programs to align with existing research and related standards developed for criminal justice and co-occurring disorder programming and services. This webinar will review the recent revision of the PPGs for RSAT that are the foundation of outcome-based and effective programming and important for all RSAT administrators, managers and staff to know.

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • List the seven Promising Practices Principles for RSAT programs and become familiar with principle subcomponents.
  • Identify those areas within the RSAT program(s) you manage / oversee that are not in alignment with the PPGs for RSAT.
  • Develop a plan for those areas within the RSAT program(s) that need support, training, and/or other assistance to help them be in better alignment with the PPGs for RSAT.
