ASAT is also 6 months drug program, has intensive therapy and group meetings but doesn't involve work release or the board.

Also, read the parole handbook, it has information there about this.

Default The Capitol Projects Fund (drug treatment, work release, shock)

CAPITAL PROJECTS

PROGRAM SERVICES
The Department operates a myriad of programs designed to prepare inmates for successful reintegration into the community. The majority of inmates entering State prison have histories of substance abuse and severe educational deficits — two factors highly predictive of criminal behavior. To counter this problem, the Agency’s rehabilitation efforts focus on basic education and simple vocational skill achievement to ready inmates for
employment upon release. The transitional services program will assist every inmate throughout all stages of their incarceration to fully participate in the wide variety of programs available in the Department’s facilities.
The Agency’s Comprehensive Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment program
(CASAT) will continue to provide over 4,800 offenders each year with six months of residential treatment and follow-up care. Resources to coordinate the Agency’s sex offender treatment programs, aggression management programs and transitional services will enable the Department to better treat and stabilize the prison population.


The Department of Correctional Services operates an institutional network of 71 correctional facilities, a number of which were converted during prison expansion in the 1980’s from very old facilities initially built for other uses. With the completion of Five Points Correctional Facility signaling the end of the most recent capacity expansion effort, the Capital Projects Fund will now focus its resources on critical physical plant maintenance andrehabilitation projects.
