Residential Student Assistance Program (RSAP)
The RSAP program is a 5-year demonstration project in Westchester County,
New York, that has dramatically reduced substance use among institutionalized
adolescents at risk. RSAP is adapted from the county's highly successful Student
Assistance Program, similar to the Employee Assistance Programs effectively
used by industry to identify and aid employees whose jobs and lives have been
harmed by substance abuse. RSAP is uniquely designed to address the needs of
seriously troubled 14-17-year-olds.
The program can be implemented in any residential facility for adolescents. Student Assistance Services Corporation (SAS Corp.), a community-based prevention agency, administers and supervises the program in partnership with each of the facilities. SAS Corp. provides clinical and programmatic supervision to assure that the program is implemented as designed. The model has several administrative and clinical strategy components.
