Two comparison groups, Fit (N = 25) and Lack of Fit (N = 25), were generated based on extent of similarity between their ideal and real perceptions of a rehabilitation center on the Community-Oriented Program Environment Scale (an index of person/environment fit). Although the Lack of Fit group reported significantly more problems in receiving center services, more dissatisfaction with services, and lower life satisfaction in the present than the Fit group, they were no more likely to drop out of their center program. Additional research is needed to determine the appropriateness of center program completion as a criterion variable and the level of post-center adjustment of the Fit and Lack of Fit groups.
