Longshore, Douglas; Grills, Cheryl
Journal of Black Psychology, v26 n3 p288-301 Aug 2000
Describes a motivational intervention, based on the transtheoretical model, to promote recovery from illegal drug use among African Americans. The culturally sensitive intervention featured a needs assessment and service referrals. Participants completed motivational intervention or standard assessment-referral protocols. Interview data indicated that motivational intervention participants were significantly less likely to be using illegal drugs 1 year later. (SM)
