2nd year alcoholism treatment outcome evaluation with a focus on mexican american patients


, : 2nd year alcoholism treatment outcome evaluation with a focus on mexican american patients. American Journal of Drug & Alcohol Abuse 6(1): 97-108

This is an evaluation of an alcohol treatment unit with a focus on a comparison of Mexican-American and Anglo-American outcomes. Social adjustment on a target cohort of 75 was measured on a standard rating instrument (SAI) 2 years after discharge from the hospital. The overall success of the program was 39%; the validity of the Treatment Difficulty Scale (a composite index of anticipated treatment difficulty) was demonstrated for both ethnic groups and both 1st and 2nd yr outcome results, and the average stability of 1st yr findings of SAI components as compared to 2nd yr results was 79%. Use of a standardized index of pretreatment patient characteristics was recommended to facilitate comparative program evaluation research.
