Abstract The authors examined frequency and patterns of self-help group attendance and active participation over a 6-month period among 411 patients receiving treatment in the NIDA Collaborative Cocaine Treatment Study. Nearly two-thirds of patients attended at least one self-help group, and nearly all of these actively participated. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings were attended most frequently. Statistical analyses included chi square, one-way analyses of variance, and cluster techniques. While patterns of attendance were relatively consistent over time, findings suggest that a treatment emphasizing the importance of self-help groups is likely to encourage more self-help group attendance and participation over time.
