Statistics of Success for Case Management & Recovery Advocates
Look forward to a forthcoming white paper on our success statistics.
Licensed professionals such as doctors, pharmacists and pilots are provided with aftercare programs by the state or federal government for 3 to 5 years following treatment. Similar monitoring programs are in place in the judicial system with high rates of success for those enrolled. Monitoring programs maintain a relationship with the patient, mandating contact with a counselor as well as random drug and alcohol screenings. In one sample study, nurses, physicians and pharmacists were reported to have relapse rates near 8-12% compared to 39% for those without a monitoring program.1 Long-term success was also seen in judicial monitoring programs, with over 85% completing multiple year programs with little or no relapse.2
