Study Investigates What Support Works Best After Inpatient Rehab

One of the greatest challenges in helping substance abusers recover is ensuring that they have access to— and participate in — follow-up care, counseling and support after their release from inpatient rehabilitation programs. Using a $959,822 National Institute on Drug Abuse grant funded by the federal stimulus act, Maxine Stitzer, a professor in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit, will study what programs are most successful in helping encourage people coming out of inpatient treatment centers to enroll in care that will support their recovery.
