Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) / Randomized Field Experiment

Refers to an experimental research design in which participants are randomly assigned to a treatment or a control group. Most social scientists consider random assignment to lead to the highest level of confidence that observed effects are the result of the program and not other variables.

Drugs & Substance Abuse

Treatment

Substance abuse treatment may be provided in a variety of settings, including on an outpatient basis, in residential treatment, or while in confinement (for offenders). In many cases, substance abuse treatment is intended to address co-occurring disorders, such as mental illness. Treatment generally involves some type of therapeutic services provided over a sustained period of time, which may address issues such as motivation, problem solving, and developing skills to resist substance abuse and other problem behaviors.
