Interactive Journaling® Found Effective In Reducing Criminality and Substance Use

Moore, Mitchell Jay. "Examining Participants' Motivation to Change in Residential Drug Abuse Program Graduates: Comparing "Stages of Change" Assessment Data with Post-Release Status." Ph.D. dissertation, University of Minnesota, 2011.

This study compared Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP) completers against RDAP non-completers under supervised release (n=195). The following results were found in the areas of criminality, substance use, employment stability and housing stability.

Overall, those who did not complete RDAP were at more than three times greater risk for having their supervision revoked than RDAP completers.
(N = 195) Hazards Ratio = 3.500, p < .05.
