dc.description.abstract The research study aimed to identify the factors contributing to premature termination of treatment for addiction. The study took the form of a differential research design based on archival data and sought to establish patient-related predictors of treatment adherence and premature drop-out. One independent variable and 14 dependent variables were chosen. The data comprised a variety of characteristics which predispose certain addicts seeking treatment to drop out of the treatment programme before completion. The most significant finding was that a history of general abuse of medication has a negative influence on treatment outcome. The limitations of the study are discussed and recommendations are made regarding further research on the topic. en
