Homelessness among substance use treatment-seekers: Insights from the patient pathways national project

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticleOther

Abstract

The Patient Pathways study is one of Australia's largest studies examining how people respond to alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment. It is the only outcome study that has examined people using a range of substances (including alcohol) and to have examined housing issues in this population. People may use AOD problematically as a means of coping with housing instability, but we know that AOD use can also be a barrier to obtaining stable accommodation.1 We therefore need to gain a better understanding of housing issues among treatment seekers and how they impact on treatment outcome.
