Dr. Rahill has two journal articles published
Dr. Guitele Rahill,
Social Work, recently published two articles in the Journal of
Social Work Practice in the Addictions, Vol. 9, Issue 3. Her
Contemporary Exploration of Treatment of Alcoholism,"
was co-authored with Dr. Elsa Pinto Lopez, University of Puerto
Rico, Anna Vanderbiest, social worker, and Dr. Christopher Rice,
Florida International University. The article's premise is that

treatment from multiple service providers), can obscure treatment
success. The article further indicates that standardizing treatment
success might require inclusions of multiple domains of life
function in defining relapse. Dr. Rahill also wrote, in the
same issue of the journal, "The
Practice and Use of Lay Injectionists among Marginalized Immigrants
in the United States: A Call for Research."
This article was also co-authored with Dr. Elsa Pinto Lopez.
