AN ANALYSIS OF DRINKER DIAGNOSIS, REFERRAL AND REHABILITATION ACTIVITY, SECTION TWO, ANALYTIC STUDY VI(PHOENIX, AZ.)

The report describes the rehabilitation system, presents key performance measures, and constructs profiles of various DWI subgroups. Valuable organizational improvements are documented, including establishment of a Rehabilitation-Probation Center. Rehabilitation effectiveness is addressed through analyses of DWI arrest recidivism and newly developed behavioral criteria relating to client "life status." Recidivism results were largely negative. Several methodological issues are discussed in relation to interpretation of results, and three options for program planning are presented. The report concludes that since both punitive sanctions and current programs appear ineffectual, the most reasonable alternative would be to systematically develop and evaluate a different mix of rehabilitation modalities.
