Race proved to be an important moderator variable in the prediction of the receipt of aftercare and psychiatric hospitalization.
Only one variable, currently receiving outpatient treatment, predicted receipt of aftercare for both African-Americans and Caucasians.
Other predictors for African-Americans were not receiving a substance abuse referral, receiving a mental health referral, and having an appointment.
For Caucasians, other predictors were being female, having previous psychiatric admissions, no substance use disorder diagnosis, and not being admitted at index.
More previous admissions and recent outpatient treatment predicted hospitalization for both racial groups.
Additional predictors for African-Americans were being male, not being accompanied to the psychiatric emergency room (PER) by family, and receiving less intense aftercare.
The only other predictor for Caucasians was being accompanied to the PER by the police.
