RDAP's Certificate of Completion
This is an actual RDAP Program Completion Certificate from one of our clients. His identity has been removed for his privacy. This certificate means that he completed Phase I of the RDAP program, the most rigorous phase. It is comprised of 500-hour worth of therapy lasting approximately 9 months. This “Group Therapy” lasts 3.5 hours daily and occurs during the morning or afternoon sessions.
You have to complete the remaining two phases of the RDAP
program successfully in order to get the sentence reduction and early release. The second phase is
considered the follow-up care that you receive if you have not yet been sent to the halfway house. While still in the general prison population, follow-up services comprise of weekly group
sessions and assignments. Not a big deal here.
The last and third phase, Transitional drug abuse treatment (or TDAT) lasts normally six months (with a minimum of four months to meet program regulations) and occurs at the halfway house and home confinement. TDAT normally comprises of weekly group therapy sessions with other former RDAP graduates and may include weekly assignments. We have noticed that each halfway house runs TDAT differently - some much more rigorous and difficult than others. We've noticed the larger the city, the more "hardcore" the program requirements and instructors.
