Pilot research on the outcome of rehabilitative interventions in drug addiction using MMPI-2

Velicogna F., Cioffi R., Narbone G., Checcucci G.


Social rehabilitation project in drug addiction. We administered the MMPI-2 test (test, re-test) in a small sample of drug addicts. Interesting results were obtained that encourage both clinical practice related to the experiment and the extension of the research to a broader sample. The action of the rehabilitation programme under examination is effective as regards cessation of the intake of narcotic substances, social containment and the regularisation of life-style while it is less effective in modifying values, significances and points of reference in users.
