THE KERN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE RESIDENTIAL SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT (RSAT) PROGRAM – A PROGRAM EVALUATION

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Program (RSAT) was established in 2013 at the Lerdo Detention Facility. Funded by a federal grant dispersed by the California Board of State and Community Corrections, the program targets high-risk male offenders who exhibit crimiongenic risk factors and who have a history of substance abuse. RSAT is a therapeutic and evidence based program providing comprehensive and intensive in-custody treatment and aftercare services provided after the offenders are released from custody into the Sheriff’s Electronic Monitoring Program. The program’s primary goal is to reduce recidivism, which is currently defined as the conviction of a new crime within three years of release from custody, or a new crime committed within three years of placement on supervision for a previous conviction. The agency strives to accomplish this by providing inmates with the tools they need to combat their substance issues and restore their sense of place in the community.
