Hawkins, J. David; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v54 n5 p661-64 Oct 1986
A test was conducted of a supplemental skills training and social-network-development aftercare program with 130 drug abusers from four residential therapeutic communities. The intervention produced positive effects on subjects' performance at the conclusion of treatment. Performance improved in situations involving avoidance of drug use, coping with drug relapse, social interaction, interpersonal problem solving, and coping with stress. (Author)
