The study, a joint effort of Syracuse University, the Research Institute on Addictions, and Promises Behavioral Health, followed dozens of patients from arrival in treatment and then again at one, three and six months following discharge.
At program entry, the patients were using drugs and/or alcohol four out of five days on average. One month after discharge, however, study participants were abstinent from alcohol more than 97% of the time and abstinent from other drugs close to 96%. And those numbers remained relatively stable as the study progressed. Six months later, the participants were abstaining from alcohol close to 92% of the time and from drugs more than 94% of the time.
