NAHDAP releases Pathways to Desistance baseline data

The National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP) is pleased to announce the release of the baseline data from the Pathways to Desistance study.

Pathways to Desistance was a multi-site study that followed 1,354 serious juvenile offenders from adolescence to young adulthood in two locales. Enrolled into the study were adjudicated youths from the juvenile and adult court systems in Maricopa County (Phoenix), Arizona (N=654) and Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania (N=700) from 2000 through 2010.

Respondents were enrolled and baseline interviews conducted from November 2000 to January 2003. Follow-up interviews were then scheduled with the respondents at 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, 60, 72 and 84 months past their baseline interview. The follow-up data are scheduled for release in Fall 2012.

More information about this study is available on the Pathways to Desistance Web site.
