Abstract

Objective: The study sought to identify patient characteristics that predict participation in substance abuse treatment in community residential facilities (CRFs) and to examine the association between patientcharacteristics, participation in treatment, and outcomes at discharge from CRFs. Methods: A sample of 2,794 patients with substance abuse disorders was assessed at entry into and discharge from a representative set of 88 CRFs nationwide. Results: In general, patients' psychological distress, motivation for treatment, prior involvement in self-help, and social resources predicted more engagement in CRF services and activities; prior inpatient treatment and the history of a psychiatricdisorder predicted less engagement. These patient characteristics also predicted outcomes at discharge; more important, participation in treatment was positively and independently associated with such discharge outcomes as completion of the program and moving into stable residence. In addition, there was some evidence that participation in treatment counteracted the negative effects of high-risk patient characteristics on outcome. Conclusions: Participation in treatment is as important a predictor of outcomes at discharge from CRFs as are patient characteristics at intake to treatment. Suggestions are made about how providers can enhance patients' motivation to participate and remain in treatment. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Inc.
