AN ANALYSIS OF DIAGNOSTIC AND REHABILITATION EFFORTS, 1976. TAMPA ASAP ANALYTIC STUDY NUMBER 5/6

The performance of the Tampa ASAP rehabilitation subsystem was examined. A detailed description of Tampa's judicial/rehabilitation system structure was provided. Descriptions of procedures related to the Short Term Rehabilitation (STR) program, and descriptions of the treatment modalities used by ASAP were presented. Normal referral to a treatment modality was interrupted in 1975 and 1976 when a research design randomly assigning clients to treatment and control conditions was put into effect. Social drinkers were assigned to either DWI school or a minimum exposure read only 'control' group. Problem drinkers were assigned to group therapy plus school, school only, or read only treatment on an equal probability basis. Extensive profile comparisons on a number of variables failed to show any substantial assignment biases.
