Treatment Naive Clients in the South East

Treatment Naive Report ThumbThis short report explores the characteristics of clients who access drug treatment for the first time and are therefore treatment naïve. The aims of this report are twofold. Firstly, to analyse characteristics of drug clients who are new to drug treatment, and therefore have no previous experience of drug treatment in the South East. The second aim is to explore how often clients who are returning to treatment during 2009/10 re-engage into structured treatment. Engaging with and retaining clients who are new to structured treatment is crucial for successful treatment exits whereby the client leaves treatment drug free and is able to reintegrate into society.
