Abstract

Garza, Monica J., An Assessment of Treatment Outcomes and Perceptions of Care Amongst a Female Dual Diagnosis Population in Texas. Master of Public Health (Management and Policy), May 2005, 109 pp., 42 Figures, 62 bibliography titles. The purpose of this study was to examine substance abuse services for the female population in Texas to ascertain whether a relationship existed between treatment settings, the severity of specified populations, and reported attitudes/perceptions of care. The study assessed sixty-four variables using an IRB-approved four-page survey instrument completed by 239 women receiving substance abuse treatment at outpatient and residential treatment settings. Statistical analyses included independent sample t-tests, correlations, and descriptive findings. The study found that the outpatient population of women surveyed a greater level of treatment satisfaction. Both study hypotheses were rejected. These evaluations will help Texas policy analysts, acknowledge a greater need for substance abuse trend studies.
