In view of recent trends toward the replacement of traditional inpatient rehabilitation programs with nonresidential services, we examined the extent to which patients currently admitted to inpatient rehabilitation for alcohol or drug abuse/dependence met published criteria suggesting a preferential need for inpatient or residential care.
Over 90% of almost 300 veterans with a primary DSM-III R diagnosis of alcohol or substance abuse/dependence, admitted to six New York Metropolitan Area Veterans Administration Medical Centers for inpatient rehabilitation, met at least one criterion dimension considered indicative of a need for such services, with over two-thirds meeting two or more dimensions.
These findings suggest a continuing need for initial primary inpatient or residential rehabilitation for such patients.
