Describes a multimodal treatment design for a short-term, residential, hospital-based program for drug abusers. Each patient is expected to attend all program services with the intent that one or several will provide the corrective emotional experience facilitating change. Services included medical care, individual counseling/psychotherapy, group counseling, health education seminars, milieu/recreational therapy, Narcotics Anonymous meetings, linkage with aftercare components, and ancillary services (vocational rehabilitation, court liaison, and 90-day follow-up). Psychology interns and students are utilized. Results of internal follow-up show that 40% of Ss admitted over 3 yrs stated they were drug-free at 90 days and 1.5 yrs.
