The Federal Bureau of Prisons has implemented early release procedures for successful completion in a Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP) in Program Statement P5331.02 (Mar. 16, 2009).

This program applies to those inmates sentenced for a nonviolent offense with a diagnosed substance abuse disorder who successfully complete RDAP. The BOP interprets "successful completion" as (1) completion of the unit-based RDAP while in the institution, (2) if applicable, participation in follow-up treatment while in general population for 12 months or until release, whichever comes first, (3) completion of a community Transition Drug Abuse Treatment while residing in a Residential Reentry Center or on home confinement, and (4) comply with the Financial Responsibility Program.

Many inmates are interested in gaining admittance into the RDAP program. Only those that qualify will enter. A diagnosable substance use disorder needs to be present within a year or more prior to the arrest and/or the instant offense conduct.

Bruce Cameron has been retained by attorneys, defendants, and families to assist in the navigation of the RDAP application process. Bruce has successfully placed inmates into the program since his retirement in 2013.

A prison consulting firm like www.federalprisonauthority.com can assist in providing information about BOP programming and eligibility.
