Retention Rates Among Methadone Patients: An Analysis of the New York Experience

  • Lee Koenigsberg

Abstract

In the early 1970’s, the methadone maintenance modality was characterized by its capability to attract and retain addicts in treatment. The results were partciularly impressive since methadone programs essentially relied on voluntary treatment as opposed to the coercive, i.e., criminal justice, retention procedures often used by other modalities. Both the professionals in the field--and the critics--have noted, with increasing concern, the declining retention rates among patients admitted to methadone maintenance programs in recent years.
