Proportion of negative samples reverted to 18% during the second baseline phase. 4 during the second baseline phase. Other drug use (opioids, cocaine, or benzodiazepines) did not change when patients were being reinforced for marijuana abstinence. Another study found similar effects. Sigmon and Higgins (2006) used a baseline, CM, baseline design to evaluate the effects of CM on marijuana use in seven patients with serious mental illness, primarily schizophrenia (86%). In all phases, patients provided urine samples twice a week.

Of those randomized to the contingent condition, 37% achieved 12 or more weeks of continuous cocaine abstinence, compared with only about 10% of patients receiving non-contingent vouchers. Beneficial effects of contingent vouchers were noted a year after treatment ended. At each time point of assessment after treatment ended, numerically higher proportions of patients who had earlier received vouchers tested cocaine negative and self-reported no cocaine use for the prior 30 days. Thus, this series of elegantly designed studies demonstrates that voucherbased CM increases durations of abstinence.

Thus, this series of elegantly designed studies demonstrates that voucherbased CM increases durations of abstinence. These studies also show that effects of CM can persist beyond the period in which patients receive the reinforcers. In fact, one of the best predictors of long-term abstinence is the duration of abstinence one is able to achieve during treatment (Higgins, Badger, & Budney, 2000). Most studies of voucher-based CM led to statistically significant increases in durations of abstinence (Lussier, Heil, Mongeon, Badger, & Higgins, 2006; Prendergast, Podus, Finney, Greenwell, & Roll, 2006).
