This paper examines patient (N=75) ratings of treatment satisfaction and outcome for severely mentally ill dually diagnosed outpatients participating in long-term integrated dual focus treatment.
In addition, it compares these ratings with case manager ratings of patient outcome over a one year period.
Satisfaction ratings ranged from very good to excellent.
Combined means of several outcomes ratings indicated that most patients rated themselves as improved.
Satisfaction with over-all care and with case management was significantly, though weakly (r=3 and. 31, respectively, p<. 05), related to patient ratings of overall outcome.
While most patients rated that they had improved, satisfaction with treatment was only weakly related to either patient or case manager rated clinical outcomes.
These findings indicate the relatively independent relationship of satisfaction with treatment outcome and caution against over generalizing the meaning of treatment satisfaction measures.
