ONE MODEL FOR THE EVALUATION OF ASAP REHABILITATION EFFORT
The relative effectiveness of Alcohol Safety Action Projects (ASAP) modalities was inferred from recidivism defined as re-arrest for Drinking While Intoxicated (DWI) after entry into a rehabilitation modality. The first phase of the investigation employed a principal components analysis to examine the organizational characteristics of 44 alcohol safety schools and 32 group therapies employed by 27 ASAP sites. Alcohol safety schools were then grouped, through hierarchical clustering analysis, into organizationally homogeneous types of schools. In the second phase of the study, recidivism rates for various drinker and school types were examined.
