Samenvatting This paper presents the results of a study of differences between participants selecting each of two alternative treatment regimes at the Occupational Health Services (OHS) Multiple DUI Offender Program in Alameda County, CA, USA. Participants selected one of the following regimes: (1) Program A, requiring the ingestion of Antabuse; (2) Program B, requiring twice as many 12-Step (Alcoholics Anonymous) meetings and periodic blood testing for gamma-glutamyl-transpeptidase (GGT). In addition, participants had to attend educational meetings, group counselling, and private interviews for up to 18 months. The participants were 548 convicted multiple DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol) offenders, enrolled in the drinking driver programme. All English-speaking participants in the OHS programme were asked to participate in the Health Attitudes and Practices (HAP) Interview, lasting about 90 minutes. The HAP Interview includes 323 questions on drinking behaviour, driving behaviour, drug use, attitudes and family history; it also has a self-administered battery of tests and personality assessments. It was found that those who chose Program A tended to be non-white, non-black, younger, non-college graduates, and divorced. However, no differences were found in programme compliance or completion.
