intervention consisted of 12 sessions for 2 weeks compare the control group
assigned treatment as usual. The primary outcomes were assessed by continuing
methamphetamine abstinent behavior and readmitted in 90 days after completed
intervention. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used in data analysis.
Results : The experimental group had significantly more patients in continuing
methamphetamine abstinence and non-readmitted in 90 days after completed
intervention than the control group; 94.95 % of experimental group compared to 77.7%
of control group p <.05 (c2 =4.25,p =.039)
Conclusion : This study demonstrated that COD intervention was more efficacious than
treatment as usual in continuing methamphetamine abstinence and non-readmitted
