The article studies what characterized thosecommitted to compulsory treatment (CT)according to the Care of Alcoholics, Drugabusers and Abusers of Volatile Solvents(Special Provision) Act as compared to thosein voluntary treatment in Stockholm County2001–2002. The aim is to analyze who is inCT by studying which client characteristics(sex, age, drug of choice, consumption, routeof administration, social situation, physicalhealth, incl. municipality) are associatedwith CT. Responses from 361 CT-clients whowere interviewed with DOK (Documentationof Clients) are compared to comparableresponses from 1772 clients in voluntarytreatment from the study Women and Menin Swedish Alcohol and Drug Treatment.Bivariate and multivariate analyses showthat the two groups differ significantly inmany respects. Clients in CT are younger,report more frequent consumption of theirmain drug of choice and an inferior socialsituation (housing, livelihood). An analysisof interaction terms shows that old alcoholmisusers are less likely to be in CT thanyoung drug misusers. Women are not morelikely to be in CT than men. However, CT wasmore often used for women, but not for men,with children under the age of 18 or whowere living with another misuser.
