BP-A0749 Agreement to Participate in a Bureau of Prisons
JUN 10 Residential Drug Abuse Treatment Program
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS
I have requested and have been interviewed to determine my qualification for admission to the Residential Drug Abuse Treatment Program (RDAP) in the Federal Bureau of Prisons. I have provided truthful answers to all questions. I acknowledge a severe alcohol/substance problem during the last 12 months before my arrest, and I am now seeking treatment for my problem. I have been informed and I acknowledge this clinical interview does not apply to my § 3621(e) eligibility for an early release.
I understand the potential benefits of participating in the RDAP and I understand my level of commitment to the program will determine how much I benefit from the program. I acknowledge and agree to expectations, rules, and policies of the Bureau of Prisons and the RDAP:
I understand that the RDAP is a residential treatment community. I understand that while residing on the program unit, I will be expected to participate fully in treatment activities I am assigned. I understand that the RDAP consists of a variety of treatment opportunities, including: the residential environment, treatment community meetings, feedback to other participants and feedback from other participants and treatment staff, therapeutic groups, therapeutic journaling, psycho-educational groups, individual sessions, treatment team meetings and possibly, psychological testing. I understand that my full participation in all these activities is essential to my success in treatment.
I understand that all RDAP participants have an individualized treatment plan and I will have the opportunity to provide input into the development of my treatment plan. I agree to accept responsibility for knowing the rules, goals and schedules of my particular treatment plan.
I understand that I am expected to protect the confidentiality and privacy of my fellow participants in
the treatment program. I agree to accept responsibility for not disclosing inmate information. I understand a breach of confidentiality will result in immediate expulsion.
I also understand that while I am living on the treatment unit, I will be expected to contribute to a positive community by refraining from any behaviors which are disruptive to the program or my fellow participants.
I understand that I am expected to follow Bureau policies, rules and regulations. I understand that I am also expected to follow the expectations, rules and regulations of RDAP. I understand that if I failed to do so, I may be expelled from the program.
In addition to the agreements listed above, I understand that, by agreeing to participate in RDAP, under ordinary circumstances, I will be placed in a program according to Bureau need and availability. Ordinarily declining such a transfer will remove me from the RDAP waiting list.
I understand that participation in the RDAP does not relieve me of any financial responsibility legally imposed.
I understand that some of my counseling sessions may be audio/video taped. I understand these tapes will be used only for rehabilitative or educational purposes within the program.
I understand that if I choose to withdraw, or am expelled from the program:
a. incentives received while an active program member may be lost;
b. any request for re-admission will include a reassessment for
c. there will be no consideration for extended RRC placement; and
d. I will lose my eligibility for any early release consideration.
I understand and agree to continued transitional drug abuse treatment services that include:
a. Continued positive behavior and treatment programming upon my
return to general population. Failure to participate in continued
treatment in the institution transition program, as prescribed by
psychology staff, for less than one hour each month over a period
of 12 months will result in my termination from treatment and
loss of incentives previously and potentially earned; and
b. Continued treatment programming upon my return to the community
through transfer to a RRC or on home confinement. Failure to
participate in continued treatment in the community transition
program may result in my return to secure custody.
I understand that staff may recommend, as a condition of my supervised release or parole, a stipulation that I receive continued treatment during the period of such release.
I understand and consent to the release of information specified below by Bureau of Prisons staff to the appropriate U.S. Parole Commission staff, U.S. Probation staff, Community Corrections staff, and Treatment Program staff for the purpose of determining my eligibility for a Superior Program Achievement or for developing a treatment plan.
The extent and nature of the information to be disclosed includes: psycho-social (including substance abuse and criminal) history; treatment progress; drug program assessment summary with recommendations for continued treatment.
I have read, or have had this document read to me, and I understand and agree to the rules and regulations for participation in the residential drug abuse treatment program described in this agreement to participate.
I understand and agree that to begin the program, I must be able to complete all components of the program; RDAP, institutional follow-up if appropriate, and Transitional Services at the RRC or home confinement, if applicable.
I understand with this agreement I may be transferred to any suitable Bureau RDAP based on my release date.
I understand by my agreement to participate in the RDAP that if found qualified to participate, I am requesting a legal review of my case for determination of early release benefits under 18 U.S.C. § 3621(e), and that this eligibility is provisional and may change.
