2004 Hoffman Report

The Defense Appropriations Conference Report for FY 2000 directed the Department of Defense (DoD) to conduct a pilot project to improve treatment outcomes for alcoholism and drug addiction, with a specific recommendation that Oxford House, Inc (OHI) recovery homes be evaluated for potential effectiveness and cost efficiency.  In FY 2001, funds were appropriated to support this endeavor. The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) developed a feasibility study to assess the potential contribution of Oxford House in the rehabilitation of military health care system beneficiaries with substance use disorders.  The Final Report was published January 1, 2004.  It is referred to as the “Hoffman Report” because the principal investigator was Colonel Kenneth Hoffman, MD, Medical Corps, United States Army.
