Lifestyle Training for addicted offenders

Program-integrity of the implementation (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The Lifestyle Training for addicted offenders is a cognitive behavioural intervention that was accredited in 2009 by the Dutch Accreditation Committee for Behavioural Interventions of the Ministry of Security and Justice (WODC). Offenders for whom it is known that the committed offense is related to substance use and/or gambling, and who have problems with substance use (abuse or dependence), are eligible for this behavioural intervention. This is a process evaluation to determine whether the Lifestyle Training is carried out as described in the training manual. The underlying causes for any problems related to implementation are examined. The following issues are discussed: 1. Selection and dropout; 2. Program integrity of implementation; 3. Motivation of those involved; 4. Contextual factors.
