Abstract

This study estimates the economic costs of Recovery Management Checkups for Women Offenders (RMC-WO), highlighting the unique mix of services across two phases of the intervention. Participants were randomly assigned to quarterly outcome monitoring (OM) only (n = 242) or OM plus Recovery Management Checkups (OM-plus-RMC) (n = 238). The total annual economic cost of OM only was $76,010, which translates to $81 quarterly per person. OM-plus-RMC generates a total annual economic cost of $126,717, or $137 quarterly per person. The clinical, economic, and policy implications of incorporating RMC-WO into existing corrections and/or community-based treatment settings are discussed.
