Two hundred male admissions into one of two inner-city residential substance abuse treatment programs were evaluated for spirituality/religious concerns with the Substance Abuse Problem Checklist (Carroll, 1983). Results indicated considerable levels of religious/spiritual needs and concerns for residents of both a Philadelphia and New York City modified therapeutic community program. Implications of these identified needs are identified and considered.
