SOCRATES Drug Form
Recognition Scale
Figure 24 displays the median recognition scale scores with the interquartile range from the SOCRATES drug form. There was a trend of increasing scores for most cases, and increases in scores were most apparent at the 25th percentile across nearly all the assessment intervals. A Friedman’s Test was conducted to test the hypothesis that program participants will increas ingly recognize that drug use is problematic for them. Referring to Table 12, the trend of in creasing recognition scale scores from the SOCRATES drug form across all three assessment intervals was statistically significant. Bivariate step down analyses (Stevens, 1996) were con ducted through a series of five WilcoxonSigned Rank Tests with the result that SOCRATES recognition scale scores increased significantly between the first and second, and first and fifth, assessments.

Notes: 1. All Friedman's Tests were evaluated using an alpha criterion of p < .025 (.05/2).
2.
Wilcoxon Tests for the alcohol form were evaluated using and alpha criterion of p < .008 (.025/3).
3.
Wilcoxon Tests for the drug form were evaluated using and alpha criterion of p < .005 (.025 5).
