Abstract

One of the components of the Women’s Drug Research Coordinating Project (WDR) is a study exploring organizational and environmental characteristics of treatment programs which are likely to impact on the quantity and quality of services provided to all clients and to women in particular. The human services organizational literature suggests that a better understanding of program services and activities is likely to help explicate the determinants of proximate and long-term outcomes for drug addicted clients.
