Rehabilitation experiences of women ex-addicts in methadone treatment.

In-depth interviews were conducted with 16 female "hard-core" heroin addicts on a methadone maintenance treatment program 1 year or longer to learn what the rehabilitation process is like for women and how their life-styles had changed since being in treatment. The paper describes the adjustments and special difficulties experienced by women through patients' own accounts. Behavioral changes were verified by clinic records and staff. Cessation of criminal behaviors, regulation of daily living patterns on methadone, increased social productivity, and adoption of new social values were noted. Persisting problems include loneliness, motivational difficulties, and an incomplete transition to ordinary society.[1]
