Drug abuse clients who are employed typically do better in their treatment than those who are unemployed. In addition, unemployment is a chronic problem in drug-dependent people. Despite the high rates of unemployment in this population, community treatment programs often do not have the resources to provide vocational services. This study will examine the effectiveness of a 12-hour basic job-training program designed to give patients the skills they need to find and secure a job and set vocational goals and methods for locating employment. The intervention to be evaluated is modeled after the Job Seekers’ Workshop, which was manualized and has been tested in trials.
