The first 90 days following release from jail: Findings from the Recovery Management Checkups for Women Offenders (RMCWO) experiment

For the first time regular checkups to promote treatment re-entry have been tried with an all-female problem substance user caseload, and one leaving prison rather than community-based treatment. Over the first three months more returned to treatment more promptly. Previous studies suggest this will lead to reduced substance use, crime and HIV infections.

Improving continuity of care in a public addiction treatment system with clinical case management

Does coordinated care management improve employment for substance-using welfare recipients?

In New York intensive case management coordinating multiple sources of support helped resolve the substance use problems of welfare applicants, but only among the women – who faced the greatest barriers to working – did this promote employment. Perhaps men would have done better being helped to rapidly enter the job market.

A meta-analysis of the efficacy of case management for substance use disorders: a recovery perspective

Therapist behavior as a predictor of black and white caregiver responsiveness in multisystemic therapy

Monitoring and evaluation of family intervention services and projects between February 2007 and March 2011

Family interventions were at the heart of the UK government’s ambition to ‘turn round’ the lives of 120,000 troubled families in England. In respect of drink and drug problems, substantial remission was seen, but the featured study could not show whether this was due to the interventions, and a report on a successor programme found no significant impacts.
