Yes, the basic structure of the model is the same as in the paper you cite, but also in "Maximum simulated likelihood estimation of a negative binomial regression model with multinomial endogenous treatment, The Stata Journal
Volume 6 Number 2: pp. 246-255

Thanks for your reply.
Does treatreg2 by any change follow the model proposed in your article stated below?

Astrid and all,

-treatreg2- is a package I've been working on, but, in part because I haven't
had the time to write things up, not made completely public. It is available
for installation, however, via

-treatreg2- models binary treatmen with a number of possibilities for the
distribution of outcomes (currently negbin-1 and 2, and gamma, with more
coming soon). The treatment and outcome equations are "tied" via a latent
factor which can be either symmetric (normal) or skewed (chi square or a
reflected chi square - for negative skewness). The model is estimated by MSL.
