Peters, Roger H.; And Others
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v19 n3-4 p1-39 1993
Evaluated 6-week jail substance abuse treatment program. Compared to no-treatment controls (n=422), program participants (n=535) remained significantly longer in community until rearrest, experienced fewer arrests, and served less jail time during the first year following their release. Participants made significant improvements in coping abilities, knowledge acquisition, and self-confidence. (Author/NB)
