  1. Frequency distribution and percent of first-contact and previous-contact patients categorized by direct assessment (Gr1) or assessment following 12 months of counseling (Gr2) by diagnosis. Percent of total indicated. Chi-Square analyses were conducted to determine the association between groups and patient history separately for each diagnosis. A result was considered significant when the probability of a Type 1 error was less than 5% (p < .05).
  2. n.s. = not significant.
  3. MMD = Major Mood Disorder, SUD = Substance Use Disorder, PB = Personality Disorder.
