Does substance abuse treatment in Washington have an impact on clients' employment and earnings?

Some previous studies on substance abuse in Washington have focused on the link between substance abuse treatment and subsequent employment outcomes. These studies were based on small samples of clients receiving ADATSA-funded treatment. For example, a 1994 study was limited to a small sample of 909 ADATSA clients from August 1 through November 30, 1989. A recent study (1997) employed only a small cohort of ADATSA clients, with a comparison group (detoxification) of 138 clients and a treatment group of 287.
