Default I heard there have been changes made to SIP program: True?

I can’t find any information online regarding this, but I have heard there have been changes made to the program. The four month TC phase is now only three months and the 60 day rehab phase is no longer mandatory - only for certain participants they feel need it. Has anyone else heard this? Or can anyone verify whether or not this is actually true!? Thank you in advance!

This is what I've found on cor.pa.gov:

Under SIP, the inmate will serve a flat sentence of 24 months, at least seven of which will be served in in-prison, (four of them in a therapeutic community), a minimum of two months in a community-based therapeutic community and a minimum of six months in outpatient treatment. The balance of the 24 months consists of supervised reintegration into the community, which involves DOC staff monitoring their progress in the community and some additional services or treatment, based upon their individual needs and progress.

Here is a link to that particular page, which includes info &, guidelines:
