Abstract

This paper discusses patient demographic and psychological characteristics as predisposing factors, and dose size and availability of alternative treatment systems as treatment variables in determining length of stay at MMTPs. In general, there is considerable evidence that predisposing factors and treatment variables interact in affecting retention rates. The implications of this interaction for research in MMTP effectiveness are discussed.
