Conducting Followup Research on Drug Treatment Programs.
Johnston, Lloyd D., Ed.; And Others
This manual is a technical resource for helping drug treatment program directors decide whether to do a follow-up of a client population and, if so, how to do one. Each chapter was written by a particular set of authors. However, the points contained in the chapters had to receive the general agreement of a committee whose membership included representatives not only from the research community, but also from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the treatment community. After completing the first three chapters, the reader should have the information needed to determine whether to do a follow-up, and how to plan it in detail and make staffing assignments, if the decision is to proceed. The remaining chapters provide detailed guidance for implementing each of the research stages. A few of the areas covered are: techniques for successfully locating respondents, interviewing techniques, confidentiality, guidelines for preparing the data for analysis and conducting the analysis, and suggestions on how a report might be organized. The appendix includes many specific examples of interview questions and interviewing training materials. (Author)
