Problems with drugs or alcohol can be part of a person’s spiral into homelessness. While not everyone who has problems with alcohol or drugs becomes homeless and not every homeless person has problems with substance abuse, these issues have a high prevalence amongst the homeless people.

Clinical guideline for homeless and vulnerably housed people, and people with lived homelessness experience

Homeless and vulnerably housed populations are heterogeneous and continue to grow in numbers in urban and rural settings as forces of urbanization collide with gentrification and austerity policies. Collectively, they face dangerous living conditions and marginalization within health care systems. However, providers can improve the health of people who are homeless or vulnerably housed, most powerfully by following evidence-based initial steps, and working with communities and adopting anti-oppressive practices.
