The RRP supports the Army's Substance Abuse Program initiatives by integrating prevention and intervention programs into a framework contributing to the four institutional outcomes of performance, readiness, retention, and recruiting.
The Risk Reduction Program originated as a reengineering effort at Ft Campbell, KY in 1994 to address a series of high risk incidents. The Army Center for Substance Abuse (ASAP) expanded the program as a tool to prevent, reduce, and manage high risk soldier behaviors. The Risk Reduction Program promotes a prevention-focused approach when dealing with personal problems and promotes focused and coordinated actions on the part of installation agencies and the chain of command in battalions with high risk profiles.
The RRPC works in coordination with the ASAP and Installation Prevention Team (IPT) staff to implement, facilitate and coordinate the Risk Reduction Program policies.
The RRP is a tool to help Commanders reduce high-risk behavior in their Soldiers. It has evolved into an efficient way of assisting Commanders in ascertaining and addressing high-risk behavioral problems.

The Unit Risk Inventory (URI) is a 53 question survey that takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. The URI helps further identify the specific problems that are most prevalent in a unit. The R-URI is an 80 item anonymous questionnaire designed to screen for high-risk behaviors and attitudes affecting unit readiness and personal well being that may have occurred during deployment or since redeployment.
