Its aim is to identify environments that promote opportunities for personal growth, simultaneously enhancing both physical and psychological well-being.

Although treatment programs are diverse, Moos asserts that a common conceptual framework can be used to evaluate them, and more emphasis should be placed on the process of matching personal and program factors and on the connections between such matches and patients outcomes.The book is divided into three main parts. Part I focuses on hospital programs, using a sample of 160 programs throughout the United States. Part II evaluates community programs. Moos describes how to monitor and improve these programs, and assesses program implementation. Part III considers treatment environments, examining factors that shape the treatment environment, patients satisfaction with and participation in program activities, patients adaptation and community living skills, and patient-program congruence and the influence of treatment environments on patients with different levels of impairment.

It also highlights the importance of the health care workplace and its impact on staff and the treatment environment.Treatment programs vary substantially in their policies and services, especially in what they expect of clients, rules about clients daily life choices, and to what extent clients must be governed by the program, and whether or not the programs provide health and treatment services. Comparison studies are becoming more important as clients move more quickly from acute in-patient to community residential care. Moos stresses the need to pay special attention to how programs and services affect clients when conducting evaluations.

Evaluating Treatment Environments will be a necessary addition to the libraries of mental health service professionals, as well as sociologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers.
