An Organizational Model for Long-Term Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for Women, Ages 15 to 25 Years, and Their Infant Children.
Bailey, Ronald F.
This practicum was designed to create an organizational model that would set the stage for the creation of a comprehensive program of substance abuse treatment in a residential setting. The subject population was women ages 15 to 25 years, who had children or were pregnant and who demonstrated patterns of substance abusing behaviors. This writer developed a database professional organizations and practitioners to determine the feasibility of the suggested model treatment program. With the input received, a non-profit organization was created to formalize the basis for program development, long term and strategic planning and the meeting of all licensure requirements. Input was also received by graduate schools of social work and professionals in the substance abuse treatment field, focusing on the menu of services and treatment modalities. Analysis of the data and input collected revealed new possibilities for an organizational design to be used as the basis for a comprehensive treatment model. Through the implementation of the organizational design, it was determined that the comprehensive treatment model proposed would provide the broadest continuum of services offering the best chance for client success.
