Abstract

This study compared treatment outcomes of substance abusers with and without antisocial personality disorder (APD) randomly assigned to two therapeutic communities, differing primarily in length of inpatient and outpatient treatment. We hypothesized that APD clients would be less likely to completetreatment, more likely to test positive for drugs and recidivate at follow-up, and that APD clients in the Standard program would have more favorableoutcomes than those in the Abbreviated Inpatient program, because of the Standard program's longer inpatient treatment. Self-reports and objective measures of criminal activity and substance abuse were collected at pre- and posttreatment interviews. APD clients were as likely to complete treatment as other clients, and they exhibited the same patterns of reduced drug use and recidivism as did non-APD clients. Treatment program attended was unrelated to outcomes. Substance abusers diagnosed with APD can benefit from treatment in a therapeutic community combined with outpatient care.
