Abstract:

The purpose of the second phase of the Army Drug and Alcohol Study was to evaluate the treatment and outcome of the U.S. Army Alcohol and Drug Prevention and Control Program ADAPCP for the period 1983-1993. Data analyzed in the study were made available by the U.S. Army Drug and Alcohol Operations Agency USADOA and the U.S. Army Patient Administration Systems and Biostatistical Major Command, and therefore by location. Outpatient Track II enrollees were compared to residential enrollees Track III, and were found to be younger, junior in grade, less severe, and more frequently enrolled for Marijuana and Cocaine. Self referrals and medical referrals were much higher in Track III. Group therapy was the most frequently utilized treatment modality. When treatment outcomes were compared by logistical regression, it was found that Educational Awareness, the primary modality utilized in ADAPT formerly Track I , significantly improved outcome, when used in combination with the other major treatment modalities, Group and Individual Therapy.
