Treatment model and evidence-based practices: Effects on parolee success
by Nash, Rebecca M., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 109; 1481629
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not the treatment program model and implementation of evidence-based practices affect the successful completion of residential aftercare treatment for parolees selected to participate in the Senate Bill 1453 (SB 1453) program. Factors considered in this study are (1) program models found in residential treatment facilities throughout California; (2) evidence-based practices; and (3) parolee outcomes including: dropping out of the program, program exclusion, program failure, and successful completion of SB 1453. The literature reveals (1) different models for treating substance abusing offenders; (2) effectiveness of treatment within each model; and (3) that implementing evidence-based practices increases the successful recovery of clients including clients with co-occurring disorders. The results of this study indicate that the program treatment model may not be a significant predictor of parolee success. However, evidence-based practices do appear to have a significant effect on parolee success.
