Abstract

During-treatment services and 7-month posttreatment entry outcome of cocaine- or alcohol-dependent men (n = 145) and women (n = 149) Target City patients receiving either standard fee-for-services (n = 183) or managed care treatment funding (n = 111) in nine community outpatient programs were compared. No differences were found in treatment services received by the various subgroups. Regression analyses compared the four described subgroups (Gender x Type of Funding) on their seven Addiction Severity Index composite scores at 7 months postadmission controlling for the respective baseline composite score and several background variables on which the groups differed. Surprisingly few outcome differences were revealed between men and women patients and patients receiving the two forms of treatment funding. The only difference noted was that patients treated via managed care showed more improvement in the drug area. The need for further evaluation of the effects of managed care is emphasized.
