The present study sought to identify drug treatment issues unique to corrections-based residential drug treatment programs for youthful offenders. Based upon qualitative data collected from program administrators and wards at three institution-based substance abuse treatment programs in California, four themes were identified which hold important implications for the delivery of substance abuse treatment services in these settings: screening/assessment, quality and intensity of services, appropriateness of program elements, and anticipated problems once paroled. Our data revealed a substantial amount of overlap in perceptions shared by program administrators and wards, as well as across programs. Of particular concern were low treatment intensity within the institution and insufficient social support upon release. (Contains 3 tables.)
