The Accelerated Intake: A Method for Increasing Initial Attendance to Outpatient Cocaine Treatment.
Festinger, David S.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v29 n3 p387-89 Fall 1996
The effectiveness of offering same day appointments at an outpatient cocaine treatment program to increase intake attendance was examined. Seventy-eight clients were given standard or accelerated intake appointments. Significantly more clients who were given accelerated appointments attended the program. An accelerated intake procedure appears to be useful for enhancing enrollment in outpatient addiction treatment. (Author/CR)
