Drug Treatment Outcome Among Minorities
“Drug Treatment Outcome Among Minorities” is part of a larger study describing the nature and extent of drug abuse problems and effective treatment for minorities. The minorities study was conducted over a 12-month period and explored the issue of minority treatment both in the literature and in the field. Five cities (Los Angeles, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and New York) with large concentrations of Asian Americans, Native Americans, and Puerto Ricans were visited by minority representatives who culled over 1,452 client records from 41 programs to collect needed data. In addition, program staff and a sample of minority and majority clients were interviewed to obtain current information about the status of minority treatment.
