Performance Improvement 2001. Persistent Effects of Treatment Studies (PETS)


The purpose of PETS is to evaluate the long-term effectiveness (up to thirty-six months) of substance abuse treatment services provided through a series of CSAT grants and cooperative agreements, and to conduct a number of special studies and policy analyses that address specific drugs of abuse, methods of treatment, populations, or policy issues. The primary follow-up studies will involve obtaining information at selected follow-up periods for persons who have completed the index treatment episode and for whom historical, intake and treatment exit data are available.
