Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This presentation reports outcomes of a program designed for adults with substance-abuse disorder living in supported housing. Interventions stressed practical competencies and building functional habits and routines, including self-directed goal setting, to support participants’ recovery and capacity to transition to independent community housing. Collaboration with case managers and housing specialists enhanced outcomes and simultaneously built evidence for the distinct value of OT interventions.
