Abstract

Employment is often viewed as a potent indicator of substance abuse treatment outcome. This study was conducted to determine if personality and/or demographic characteristics of a cohort of unemployed substance dependent persons presenting for addiction treatment might predict employment 9 months postadmission. By using stepwise discriminant function analysis, seven variables predictive of employment were identified. The positive value of employment was clearly documented. Those who gained employment were functioning better with regard to social and drug-use parameters than those who did not.
