The Foundation's Substance Abuse Policy Research Program was designed to provide support for investigators to conduct policy research on a variety of subjects directed at helping the country reduce the harm caused by substance abuse.This study will compare the cost effectiveness of four levels of substance abuse treatment for prisoners: an intensive 6-month residential, a 5-day per week day treatment, a 2-session per week outpatient, and a no treatment group. Analyses will compare the carefully defined costs of substance abuse treatment delivered in prison to the benefits of anticipated reductions in post-release criminal activity.
