Analysis of the cost effectiveness of substance abuse treatment programs for prisoners
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.
