Social support for abstinence and employement are predictors of successful functioning after substance abuse treatment. Unemployment problems are often significant in Native American communities. To address this problem, the Southwest Node of the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) conducted a single-site adaption of its national Job Seekers Workshop study (protocol CTN-0020) in a Native American treatment program. Participants were randomized to (1) a three-session, manualized program or (2) a 40-minute Job Interviewing Video. Main effects for treatment on job-seeking behavior or employement rates were not found at 3-month follow-up. One explanation for these null findings is that participant characteristics, i.e., treatment history, may have moderated treatment effects. This study tested for potential moderating effects of treatment history on job seeking behaviors at 3-month follow-up among Native Americans enrolled in a larger study. (Poster, PDF, English, 2008)
