Abstract The criminal justice system is a large source of substance abuse treatment referrals. For example, the SAMHSA Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), indicates that approximately 37% of substance abuse treatment referrals were made through the criminal justice system. This study will utilize the TEDS-Discharge data to identify factors associated not only with successful treatment completion, but also attrition (including ?drop outs? and incarceration) among justice-referred individuals. We will consider type of criminal justice referral, recent criminal justice contact, and treatment-related factors. An appreciation of these factors is important to maximize the effectiveness of substance abuse treatment for a justice-involved population.
