The TEDS Report February 12, 2009: Treatment Outcomes among Clients Discharged from Residential Substance Abuse Treatment: 2005

In 2005, clients discharged from short-term residential treatment were more likely to complete treatment and less likely to drop out of treatment than clients discharged from long-term residential treatment. Treatment completion among clients discharged from short-term residential treatment was highest among those who reported primary alcohol abuse (66 percent) and lowest among those who reported primary stimulant abuse (46 percent). Treatment completion among clients discharged from long-term residential treatment was also highest among those reporting primary alcohol abuse (46 percent), but lowest among those reporting primary cocaine abuse (33 percent) or primary opiate abuse (35 percent). As educational level increased, the proportion of client discharges completing either short-term or long-term residential treatment increased.
