Drug Abuse Program
A 15-Hour Drug Education Program is offered through the Psychology Department. The program schedule varies, but often involves group sessions several-times a week. In order to complete the program, participants must take a competency-based post-test and obtain a score of at least 70%. Generally, the Drug Education Program is voluntary; however, it is mandatory if (1) There is evidence that alcohol or other drug use contributed to the commission of the offense, (2) Alcohol or other drug use was a reason for violation either of supervised release (including parole) or Bureau community status, (3) There was a recommendation for drug programming during incarceration by the sentencing judge, or (4) There is evidence of a history of alcohol or other drug use. Failure to comply with the treatment recommendations may result in sanctions.
FCI Memphis & SPC Millington will screen inmates for Residential Drug Treatment Program qualification. Incentives are offered to inmates who meet eligibility requirements and complete this program. These incentives include early release and consideration for maximum half-way house placement.
Follow-up drug abuse treatment services are offered to inmates who have completed RDAP at another institution. Inmates who have completed a residential treatment program are fully expected to participate in building upon the principles in which they learned in treatment.
Non-Residential Drug Abuse Treatment is also available for inmates interested in a recovery program at this institution. Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous groups are also offered through Unit Team for interested inmates. These programs are offered on a strictly voluntary basis.
