HOSPITALISATION OUTCOMES FOLLOWING ADMISSION TO A RESIDENTIAL DRUG AND ALCOHOL PROGRAM
An internationally peer-reviewed study on Noffs’ adolescent residential treatment’s ability to reduce hospitalisations and drug useAll Research and Trends
This study examines the association between treatment in a therapeutic community for adolescents with drug and alcohol problems on hospitalisation outcomes up to 15 years later for all clients, and separately for those with and without a history of criminal conviction.
It concludes that adolescents who engage in a therapeutic community treatment program may have a long-lasting reduction in the risk of subsequent hospitalisation. This also appears to apply to those with a history of criminal conviction.
