Male and female managed care clients randomized to day hospital (n=154) or community residential treatment (n=139) were compared on substance use outcomes at 6 and 12 months. To address possible bias in naturalistic studies, outcomes were also examined for clients who self-selected day hospital (n=321) and for clients excluded from randomization and directed to residential treatment because of high environmental risk (n=82).

Costs of day hospital and community residential chemical dependency treatment.

Outcomes and costs at residential versus day hospital programs were similar for women and for Whites, and women and Whites appear to be equally well-served in residential and dayhospital programs, with no significant cost differential.

Services received and treatment outcomes in day-hospital and residential programs.

Participation in a novel treatment component during residential substance use treatment is associated with improved outcome: a pilot study

The Natural Recovery Program was associated with improved outcomes, as measured by treatment retention in the first 60 days and by treatment completion, and may be a valuable adjunct to residential treatment.

Residential treatment for individuals with substance use disorders: assessing the evidence.

Residential treatment for substance use disorders shows value and merits ongoing consideration by policy makers for inclusion as a covered benefit in public and commercially funded plans, but research with greater specificity and consistency is needed.

Longer Length of Stay Is Not Associated with Better Outcomes in VHA’s Substance Abuse Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Programs

It is concluded that in VHA SARRTPs, ALOS greater than 90 days cannot be justified by the substance use disorder severity of the patients served or the magnitude of the clinical improvement observed.

Recovery Factors in a Social Recovery Program for Homeless Individuals Implementing Addiction Recovery Management Principles.

Substance abuse intensive outpatient programs: assessing the evidence.

IOPs are an important part of the continuum of care for substance use disorders and are as effective as inpatient treatment for most individuals, and public and commercial health plans should consider them as a covered health benefit.

Impact of residential versus outpatient substance abuse treatment on child welfare outcomes: A secondary analysis of NSCAW II data

Considering the importance of worker assessments to child welfare outcomes such as reunification and case closure, this study’s findings have implications for treatment assignment for child welfare involved parents.

Twelve-Step affiliation and 3-year substance use outcomes among adolescents: social support and religious service attendance as potential mediators.

The findings suggest the importance of 12-Step affiliation in maintaining long-term recovery, and help to understand the mechanism through which it works among adolescents.



Integrating primary medical care with addiction treatment: a randomized controlled trial.

Individuals with SAMCs benefit from integrated medical and substance abuse treatment, and such an approach can be cost-effective.

Outcomes and costs of day hospital treatment and nonmedical day treatment for chemical dependency.

The results not only demonstrate the clinical diversity that exists between nonmedical, community-based day treatment programs but also show that nonmedical programs can compete with DH treatment in cost as well as in most outcomes.

Effect of random versus nonrandom assignment in a comparison of inpatient and day hospital rehabilitation for male alcoholics.

Compared with patients who self-selected treatment, the comparisons between day hospital and inpatient treatment yielded similar outcomes under both "scientific" conditions and the conditions that more closely approximate the experiences of most patients.

Random versus nonrandom assignment in the evaluation of treatment for cocaine abusers.

Findings suggest that randomized studies of treatment for cocaine abuse may produce somewhat larger estimates of improvement than what is observed in more typical treatment situations.

Treatment goals, continuity of care, and outcome in a day hospital substance abuse rehabilitation program.

Patients who complete day hospital substance abuse rehabilitation and then continue to participate in self-help groups are likely to have lower rates of alcohol and cocaine use during follow-up.

The Combined Effects of Treatment Intensity, Self-Help Groups and Patient Attributes on Drinking Outcomes

Testing a set of hypotheses relating to the effects on drinking outcomes of treatment modality, modality matching, treatment retention, aftercare, self-help group participation and patient attributes at admission found outcomes for inpatient and outpatient treatment were equal.

Predictive validity of the ASAM Patient Placement Criteria for naturalistically matched vs. mismatched alcoholism patients.

The ASAM Criteria show promise for reducing both detrimental undertreatment and cost-inefficient overtreatment, and are robust for both methods of assessment.

The effectiveness of inpatient and outpatient treatment for alcohol abuse: the need to focus on mediators and moderators of setting effects.

When inpatient treatment was found to be more effective, outpatients did not receive a respite in the form of inpatient detoxification and the studies were slightly less likely to have social stability inclusion criteria and to use random assignment to treatment settings.

Problem-service 'matching' in addiction treatment. A prospective study in 4 programs.

Matched patients stayed in treatment longer, were more likely to complete treatment, and had better posttreatment outcomes than did the standard patients treated in the same programs.
