Reading and Writing; Adult Education in Comprehensive Combined Addiction Treatment: Needs, Problems, and Benefits.
Schneider, Karl A.; And Others
This paper describes the results of the first year of the Eagleville Reading Academy and Satellite Program, a demonstration project funded by the U.S. Office of Education, Right to Read. Eagleville Hospital and Rehabilitation Center treats addicts and alcoholics in a combined abstinent therapeutic community program setting. The goals of the Eagleville Reading Academy Grant are as follows: (1) To demonstrate the necessity of individualized adult personalized education assistance for addicts and alcoholics as an integral component of the addiction/treatment rehabilitation process in the therapeutic community; (2) To develop a model program which involves a team concept of professionally accredited teachers working with a core group of trained volunteers who will work in concert with a resident/candidate; (3) To create a variety of methods, approaches and particularly high interest materials; (4) To offer referral and follow-up services linking to other adult educational programs when patients leave the Eagleville program; and (5) To offer an evaluation process of the effect of education on recovery and to provide data concerning this relationship. Eagleville's first-year operational data indicate that remedial education is an integral component for patient recovery in drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. (Author/JLL)
