National Treatment Improvement Evaluation Study: Drug and Alcohol Use

For over 25 years Pat Moore Foundation has specialized in oxycodone and other opiate addiction treatment programs. We know first-hand the powerful addictive and destructive qualities of oxycodone and prescription drug abuse. Following is a short information guide on oxycodone abuse, addiction, symptoms, risks, hydrocodone, suboxone detox and treatment. We provide this as a service to Pat Moore Foundation family and friends, as well as for anyone seeking helpful and insightful information on oxycodone, including its addiction and abuse.

Drug and Alcohol Use

Significant reductions in substance abuse were generally found during and immediately following treatment. But most important, NTIES showed that clients served by Federally-funded substance abuse treatment programs were able to reduce their drug use by about 50 percent for as long as one year after leaving treatment.

  • Clients' use of their primary drug(s), the one(s) that led them into treatment, declined from 73 percent to 38 percent one year after treatment;
  • Cocaine use decreased from 40 percent before treatment to 18 percent one year after treatment;
  • Heroin use, which most experts believe is the most treatment resistant of drugs, was reduced by almost half, from 24 percent the year before to 13 percent a year after treatment;
  • Crack, a drug used by approximately half the NTIES respondents, showed a significant decrease between the 12 months before and the 12 months after treatment - down from 50 percent to 25 percent;
