Abstract

Recent research has examined variables related to attendance at aftercare services because of the correlation between aftercare and posthospitalization treatment success. The present study, which examined aftercare attendance for 40 randomly selected subjects following discharge from an inpatient alcohol treatment program, extends the list of variables found to influence attendance. A multiple-regression analysis of subject demographic variables and variables of a more programmatic nature found that distance variables (e.g., number of miles to an aftercare agency) significantly influenced aftercare attendance. The results are discussed with respect to aftercare program decisions.
