Long-Term Follow-Up of Therapeutic Community Clients

  • Sherry Holland


This is the first in a series of reports on a large-scale, longterm outcome evaluation of Gateway Houses, a residential drug-free treatment program (therapeutic community) for drug abusers in Illinois. Follow-up subjects (N=648) are a sample of all first admissions to a Gateway treatment facility between July, 1968 and June, 1974 (N=1418). Time between discharge from treatment and date of follow-up ranges from one to nine and one-half years.
