Abstract

Of 60 cocaine misusers seeking outpatient treatment, 33 (55%) dropped out by 4 weeks. Dropouts were more likely to be male, Black or Hispanic, or with no history of primary depression. Completers were more likely to be White, female, or depressed. The implications of these findings and possible strategies for reducing the dropout rate are discussed.
