  1. An examination of racial and ethnic differences within a sample of Hispanic, white (non-Hispanic), and African American medicaid-eligible pregnant substance abusers.

    Article - En anglais

    White (n=213), African American (n=210), and Hispanic (n=104) Medicaid-eligible, chemically-dependent, pregnant women were interviewed during their stay in publicly-funded detoxification centers in Massachusetts.

    Comparisons of demographic, psychosocial, and substance abuse variables revlealed significant intergroup differences in almost all instances.

    There appears to be as much heterogeneity within the treatment population subgroup of pregnant women as there is across different treatment populations.

    Ramifications of the observed differences for treatment planning and service provision are discussed.
