Abstract:

Prior studies have argued for the importance of aftercare completion in the continuum of treatment for drug-involved offenders. However, few studies have had as their primary focus the examination of factors that may serve as predictors of retention in aftercare. Results from a study of 463 ex-offenders admitted to post-prison community aftercare treatment in Pennsylvania following 12 months of correctional-based therapeutic community drug treatment are presented. Significant predictors of aftercare completion included lower levels of risk (as assessed by the Level of Service Inventory – Revised), lower levels of hostility (as assessed by the TCU Resident Evaluation of Self and Treatment instrument), and type of prior drug use (as assessed by the TCU Drug Screen II). Identifying predictors of aftercare completion, particularly dynamic predictors, can inform strategies to improve the assessment, identification, retention, and treatment outcomes of individuals who are at the greatest risk of dropping out.
