FIRST INTERIM ANALYSIS OF MULTIPLE OFFENDER TREATMENT EFFECTIVENESS

The report is the first interim analysis concerning the effectiveness of the CDUI Project's educational counseling programs for multiple offender DUI's. The State Senate Bill 38 (SB 38) research design had four treatment groups, two forms of group counseling (Skills Workshop and Educational Eclectic Therapy) provided with or without chemotherapy (Disulfiram). The post-conviction presentence (PCPS) research design, used for clients with only one prior DUI conviction, had a no-treatment Control group and a minimum exposure, Biweekly Contacts Only group in addition to the four Counseling/Chemotherapy groups provided in the SB 38 design. Treatment effectiveness was assessed in terms of recorded accidents, DUI offenses, and total moving violations occurring subsequent to random assignment. Survival analysis was used to compare these traffic safety criteria between treatment groups.
