Introduction and Aims. The study aimed to ascertain the association between baseline client characteristics, drug use and psychopathology on length of stay, treatment completion and early separation in drug free therapeutic communities.
Design and Methods. Prospective longitudinal follow up of 191 treatment admissions to We Help Ourselves drug free treatment services.
Results. The median length of stay was 39 days. A total of 17% of treatment entrants dropped out in the first week, and 34% successfully completed the treatment program. Length of stay was independently associated with a previous history of treatment completion (ß = 0.21, P Discussion and Conclusions.
