Abstract:

The Drug Rehabilitation Center at Miramar, California, was established in June 1971 in response to acute concern with the epidemic of drug abuse, including heroin use, that developed in Southeast Asia during 1970-1971. The population received during the first year included many men who had become addicted to heroin and large numbers of polydrug users. A large proportion of this Miramar population had records of delinquency and anti-social behavior before and during their military service. Five distinct therapy programs were established in order to meet the needs of this heterogeneous population. These programs are described, and the problems encountered and progress achieved during the first year of operation are described. Author Modified Abstract
