The treatment of disabled persons with alcohol and drug problems : results of a survey of addiction services.
This report provides information on disabled clients that was collected as a supplement to the 1989 Addiction Research Foundation survey of alcohol/drug services in Ontario.
The estimated prevalence of disabled clients in the treatment population was highest for those with psychiatric disordeze (10.3%), followed by physical disabilities (mobility, 3.7%; vision, 1.5%; hearing, 1.4%; other impairment, 0.1%) and developmental handicaps (2.3%). There were, however, relatively few agencies reporting services tailored specifically for the disabled.
Respondents generally felt that clients with psychiatric disordeze or developmental handicaps would be better served by specialized programs with additional staff training, while the physically disabled could be adequately served in « mainstream » services.
