  1. The efficacy of a psychiatric halfway house : a study of hospital recidivism and global outcome measure.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors investigated the post-halfway house outcome of a sample of 41 former residents of the halfway house of the Department of Psychiatry, Athens University.

    Two criteria were used :

    Hospital recidivism and global ratings of outcome (which was assessed on the basis of three parameters : rehospitalization, employment and independent living).

    Mean duration from the time of departure was 32 months (range : 8-52 months).

    Within this period good outcome and non-recidivism were related with compliance to pharmacotherapy.

    Most recidivists also had a shorter stay in the halfway house and cases with successful outcome tended to be evaluated higher on the « Behaviour in Halfway House Scale » at the end of the residency.
