dc.description.abstract The present study explores the effectiveness of the Grant County Court Alcohol and Drug Program. One-hundred-twenty-nine probationers referred to the program by the county court for substance abuse treatment participated in this study. Subjects responded to questions about their life qualities before and after treatment, using a programmatically administered quality of life measure, the "Recovery Chart." A control group of twenty subjects from another probation department (i.e., Marion City Probation Department) also anonymously participated in the study. The control subjects did not accept substance abuse treatment offered to them by the city court. A comparison of the two groups showed that there was a significant difference between their quality of life scores. Score differences indicated that the Grant County Court Alcohol and Drug Program was productive in assisting subjects to elevate their qualities of life. An investigation of the Recovery Chart showed moderate reliability (i.e., inter-item consistency and test retest) and construct validity. en_US
