Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine if providing a county specific electronic resource guide with low and no cost services to outpatient substance abuse counselors, results in more and better matched services for the clients. These services are not limited to substance abuse treatment, they include such services as legal assistance, financial assistance, mental health, etc. It is hypothesized that by treating the "whole client" the result will be longer substance abuse treatment stays and greater success with sobriety.

Description

The proposed research study is directed at performing health services research in an estimated 15 community-based abstinence-oriented outpatient addiction treatment programs by developing ways of incorporating research-derived measures into standard clinical practice in the treatment of substance abuse clients. The primary goals are to use training and technology transfer to match services to client needs, increase the number of services received by clients, and improve client outcomes. In total, 20 counselors and 400 clients will participate in the study. Comparisons: Two groups will be compared, a control and experimental group. The Standard Assessment group (control group), will provide treatment as usual and the Enhanced Assessment group (experimental group), will provide treatment with the use of an electronic resource guide that contains low and no cost services in the county in the which the treatment program is located.
