Kodak Black To Seek Rehab In Prison For Drug Problems
His Legal team, as reported by complex, are trying to have him checked in a facility with the Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP). It is a rehabilitation program for inmates with prior drug problems. The rehab stay is expected to last just nine months.
Kodak has been in the game for just a short time but he has certainly had his struggles with the law which have hurt his ability to make music. Fortunately, Kodak will only have to serve just over three years of his sentence, as he already has some time served in the bank.
It remains to be seen whether or not Kodak will be able to attend this program due to some pending legal issues. For instance, Kodak was recently in a prison fight where he ended up attacking a guard. He is also facing two new gun charges which could land him 30-year sentences. If Kodak were to be indicted or convicted, he could be denied placement in the rehab program.
According to docs filed Monday in federal court, the rapper is asking the court to send him to a prison that offers the Residential Drug Abuse Program. The 500-hour program lasts 9 months and involves group therapy, as well as one-on-one treatment.
It also requires all participants to live in a separate unit from the general population — a pretty clear benefit to a celebrity rapper doing time.
Upon completion of the program, inmates can get as much as 12 months knocked off their prison bid.
