INTERIM ANALYSIS OF STR PERFORMANCE AND EFFECTIVENESS. SHORT TERM REHABILITATION (STR) STUDY

The development of criterion measures employed in analyses of the effectiveness of STR alcohol rehabilitation modalities are documented and include measures of direct traffic safety outcome criteria, measures of client drinking behavior comparable to criteria employed in previous evaluations of NIAAA treatment programs, and a set of factor analytically derived scales of client behavior designed to assess adjustment in a number of life adjustment dimensions. The report also provides a summary of alternative STR rehabilitation countermeasure programs, and presents demographic profiles of clients referred to alternative treatment and no-treatment conditions at the eleven STR sites. The results of interim assessments of STR treatment effectiveness within seven separate program level designs are also presented. Preliminary results indicate evidence of treatment effectiveness only for alcohol safety schools.
