A Community-Based Multilevel Approach to Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation.
Dell Orto, Arthur E.
The failure of incarcerative approaches in the alleviation of drug abuse combined with the advent of more liberal public opinion toward drugs has resulted in the development of various rehabilitation treatment methods. The complexity and heterogeneity of the problem, however, indicate the desirability of a multidimensional approach which integrates traditional resources and innovative concepts. Residential treatment facilities provide a structure to incorporate a multilevel approach which is dependent upon community responsibility and commitment, which are necessary conditions for a successful rehabilitation program. This article explores issues surrounding drug treatment, presents components of a residential treatment program, and discusses implications for the community in the area of drug rehabilitation.
