Access to Generic Substance Abuse Services for Persons with Mental Retardation.
Lottman, Thomas J.
Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v39 n1 p41-55 Fall 1993
Investigated access to generic substance abuse services for persons with mental retardation. Telephone survey of chemical dependency treatment agencies revealed that agencies accepting mentally retarded clients differed significantly from nonaccepting agencies in their perceived difficulty in integrating these clients and in their acceptance of Medicaid as reimbursement. Lack of staff training was seen as barrier to service delivery. (Author/NB)
