The 2000 NSSATS records whether a facility offers each of 26 different SAT services and groups these individual services into five categories: assessment, therapy/counseling, medical testing, transitional, and other ancillary.
First, NSSATS records MC and specific service offerings as binary variables.
We recognize that the aforementioned NSSATS data limitations constrain our analyses.
It is also one of the few articles to use the full set of current NSSATS data to examine managed care, thereby obviating the need to generalize from a sample.
We use data on SAT facilities from the 2000 National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (NSSATS).
The 26 individual services are grouped by NSSATS into 5 categories: medical testing, therapeutic/counseling, assessment, transitional, and other.
Our analyses are limited by the data available from the NSSATS data file.
