Innovative Approaches in the Treatment of Drug Abuse: Program Models and Strategies

Synopsis

What works best and why in the nation's effort to improve and expand treatment counteracting the epidemic use of cocaine and the spread of AIDS? This in-depth report by experts on drug abuse treatment today represents the state of the art in research about effective new strategies in drug abuse treatment. The findings, analysis, and recommendations should counteract misunderstanding and misinformation about the nature of drug abuse among 5.5. million patients and what can be done to help them. The survey covers methadone programs, residential programs, case management programs, and multi-modal and other eclectic programs addressing "real world" situations among different populations in a range of community-based programs. Investigators at the National Institute on Drug Abuse describe 15 projects that test intervention strategies to improve client recruitment, retention, performance, and treatment outcomes.
