Now, I’m going to read you a list of characteristics that a substance abuse treatment facility or
program may have. For each, regardless of any programs you may or may not work with, I
would like you to tell me if you think that characteristic would make a substance abuse treatment
program more effective, less effective, or whether it would have no particular impact on a
substance abuse treatment program’s effectiveness.
