Studies of the Effectiveness of Treatments for Drug Abuse, Based on the Drug Abuse Reporting Program (DARP): 1974. IBR Report 74-26.
Texas Christian Univ., Fort Worth. Inst. of Behavioral Research.
The papers included in this volume are part of a programmatic investigation involving the evaluation of treatments for drug abuse. The studies are based on treatment outcome criteria for the patient sample representing all admissions during year 3 (June 1, 1971 to May 31, 1972) of the Drug Abuse Reporting Program (DARP). The overall strategy of the research program involves a series of studies which include: (1) descriptive and analytic studies of the DARP population; (2) taxonomic studies of patients, treatments, and outcomes; (3) evaluation studies, based on during-treatment outcomes; and (4) evaluation studies, based on post-treatment criteria. These studies represent the contributions of a large number of individuals from which group nine papers were selected for this major report. (Author/PC)
