States vary widely on success rates for minorities in drug treatment programs
Date:6/19/2013

ences that did not conform to certain stereotypes about certain states.

"I anticipated that Southern states might have the worst disparities between minorities and whites, or at least that Southern states would share similar results," Arndt says. "But, while Tennessee has the worst disparity between African-American clients compared to white clients, Mississippi is the third best state and had almost no difference in completion rates for whites and African-Americans."

Although the research was able to quantify state-to-state disparities in completion rates, the study did not determine the causes of the disparities.

Arndt says that one possible factor is the use and availability of so-called ancillary, or recovery, services. Previous research suggests that minorities undergoing substance abuse treatment may need more of the services, which include help with employment, housing, and mental health care, and they seem to be more sensitive to a lack of these services.

"States that do not have recovery services available may need to make them more available," Arndt says.
