Predictors of Competitive Employment among Consumers with Co-Occurring Mental and Substance Use Disorders
Biegel, David E.; Stevenson, Lauren D.; Beimers, David; Ronis, Robert J.; Boyle, Patrick
Research on Social Work Practice, v20 n2 p191-201 2010
Objectives: This study examines consumer and agency level predictors of competitive employment for consumers with co-occurring disorders. Methods: The study sample included 191 consumers from mental health agencies receiving Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment services, including a subgroup which was referred for Supported Employment Services. Results: Logistic regression analyses show consumers with schizoaffective disorder, greater psychiatric distress, and those not referred for Supported Employment services were less likely to enter competitively employment. Lack of previous employment and consumers' perceived disability negatively affected employment through referral status. Conclusions: Implications for mental health practice, service delivery, and future research are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
