Description

UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs (ISAP) conducted a two-year pilot study to test the efficacy of a drug abuse treatment program designed for drug dependent women in prison. Specifically, the study examined the relative effectiveness of a “relational-based,” multifaceted program called Women’s Integrated Treatment (WIT) compared to a standard prison therapeutic community (TC) treatment program. Relational-based programs emphasize the important role of relationships and intimate partners in women’s addiction and recovery.
