Cameron Douglas isn't out of the woods just yet! Although he was recently released from prison after seven years for several drug-related offenses, the 37-year-old could now be facing oppressive rules, random drug tests and violence, a former resident of his halfway house told RadarOnline.com.
Douglas is believed to be living at the New York RRM — a halfway house with facilities in Brooklyn and the Bronx.
The Brooklyn facility, which is run by the BOP, has a number of problems and restrictions, former New York RRM resident and prison exert Earl David exclusively told Radar. "You have to be breathalyzed and they pat you down every time – it's like the airport," David said. "Being that he had a drug case, he'll probably have random urine tests."
David claimed, "When everyone comes in, they check you for drugs." But he said that sometimes contraband sneaks through, and warned, "There's a lot of drugs dealers there so he could easily associate with the wrong people."

"When I was there, someone went on a K-2 binge and the guy was rolling on the recreational roof and he almost killed himself," the former inmate alleged.

Meanwhile, the inmates are required to obtain passes to perform daily activities such as using the computer or going to the grocery store. "They want you to go out, but you have to get a day pass," David revealed. "Everything is a pass."

One of RRM's main focuses is urging the residents to find a job as quickly as possible. However, a pass for each day is needed along with another frustrating catch! "Whatever you get in a job you have to give them 25%. 25% of the gross goes to the halfway house," he told Radar.

"Of course when you go outside, it's called contact call. Wherever you go, you have to make a contact call with the facility when you arrive at your location, when you leave the location. If you don't make the contact call they'll take away your privileges," David explained. "A lot of people, once you're there, get to go home on the weekends."

According to the BOP's online Inmate Lookup database, Michael Douglas' troubled son will be at the halfway house until March of next year. However, David revealed that officials often urge residents to go on home confinement after a few months, granted the person follows the house rules.

"Once you're there they try to push you to home confinement, they put you in a bracelet and you have to charge it every twelve hours," David told Radar. "Then you have to go back to the halfway house once a week for weekly passes. Let's just say you want to go to the movies – you have to make a special request."

But even a house arrest stint has its own challenges, the former inmate said.
"They have a guy who comes to visit you once a month, making sure you're in a job, making sure you're home. They have a system where they're constantly monitoring your movements. When I had the bracelet I had two socks on because the rubber rips your skin."
As Radar previously reported, Douglas was arrested in 2009 for several drug-related offenses including dealing methamphetamine. His 5-year sentence was then extended after he was caught doing drugs behind bars!
