Outcome Evaluation of the Iowa State Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Program

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) funded a two-year grant to the Consortium to continue the evaluation of the Clarinda TOW (The Other Way) program at the Clarinda Correctional Facility. The TOW evaluation will address the following questions:

  1. Does the program accomplish its stated intermediate goals (i.e. influence attitude change regarding substance use)?
  2. Are there differences between clients that completed the cognitive unit program at TOW versus the two 12-step based units?
  3. Are certain types of clients better served by the TOW program than others?

Information has been archived at the National Addiction and HIV Data Archive.
