Abstract
This dissertation presents the results of over 20 years of study into the effectiveness of case managagement, specifically a strengths-based model of case management, at different points on the substance abuse continuum of care. Findings came from two large clinical trials with over 1,100 participants. The primary results of the studies presented here show that strengths-based case management is effective at improving linkage, retention and other treatment tasks. Personal functioning outcomes such as reduced drug use and criminality are not as likely to be directly impacted by case management models. The impact that case management has on personal functioning may be mediated by its' impact on the treatment related tasks.
