A new review of published literature on substance abuse treatment for homeless
individuals is available on the National Health Care for the Homeless Council¹s
website at
http://www.nhchc.org/Publications/SubstanceAbuseTreatmentLitReview.pdf

This 62 page paper, entitled: "Substance Abuse Treatment: What Works for
Homeless People?: A Review of the Literature," summarizes substantive research
findings on the efficacy of specific treatment modalities, addresses issues of
engaging and retaining homeless individuals in treatment programs, and describes
some assumptions and issues underlying this body of published research.

This paper was prepared by Suzanne Zerger of the National Health Care for the
Homeless Council, Inc. in collaboration with a group of HCH clinicians,
administrators, and researchers and  was supported by a grant from the Health
Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services.
