AN ANALYSIS OF THE MINI-ASAP REHABILITATION COUNTERMEASURES: 1976
The study dealt with the effectiveness of three major rehabilitation programs for drinking-drivers: Disulfiram, Alcoholics Anonymous and Court School Programs. A program was considered effective if it helped in the reduction of recidivism for alcohol-related driving offenses and crashes. The study used samples of drivers who were referred to three types of treatments. It also used a comparison group composed of individuals who were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, but not referred to treatment. Multiple regression analyses formed the core of the analyses. Recidivism rates for selected groups were compared. The profiles of recidivists vs. non recidivists were examined. Finally, ASAP's catalytic effect on rehabilitation was described.
