Inpatient and outpatient outcomes in Missouri's alcohol and drug treatment programs
A comparison of the effectiveness of inpatient and outpatient services for alcohol and drug clients is presented. Controls for program completion and severity of substance use on entry to treatment are included. While inpatients do only as well as outpatients overall, inpatient services show significant advantage for particular classes of clients. Results, though preliminary, suggest that the recent call for a cutback in inpatient services is premature.
