Contingency Contracting with Drug Addicts in the Natural Environment.
Boudin, Henry M.; And Others
Contingency contracting, as a viable treatment modality for the rehabilitation of drug abusers, has been investigated, and promising results have been attained. During the past two and one-half years drug abuse treatment and paraprofessional training models have been developed. Treatment for drug abuse has been facilitated within the natural environment, utilizing extensive volunteer paraprofessional involvement. This research, stemming from a behavioral conceptualization of treatment, stresses continuous evaluation and accountability. (Author)
