Vocational Rehabilitation in Substance Abuse Treatment Programs
Machlan, Bonna; Brostrand, H. L.; Benshoff, John J.
Journal of Teaching in the Addictions, v3 n1 p71-80 2004
Research indicates that those who undergo treatment for alcohol and other drug abuse largely have poor work histories and low employment rates, regardless of their education. Relapse rates for individuals in recovery increase when unemployment remains a constant in their lives. Consequently, providing vocational services during treatment may be a vital part of relapse prevention. Although studies have addressed the relationship between relapse and unemployment, few substance abuse treatment programs offer vocational evaluation or training. Results of this research indicate that vocational rehabilitation services are not being fully utilized in substance treatment settings. (Contains 3 tables.)
