The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal seeking funds for a bridge program for homeless individuals with a history of substance abuse. The literature review addressed the prevalence of homelessness in the United States, subpopulations within the homeless, factors that may contribute to homelessness, how substance misuse plays a major role in homeless individuals' lives, and relapse in this population.
The bridge program will be implemented at Choices Recovery Services in Long Beach, California. The program seeks to provide additional support to homeless people who have completed substance abuse treatment within the past 3 months and help them transition from treatment back to their original environment. Additional support directly after treatment can help individuals through the process of recovery, which starts in rehabilitation centers but continues after they have completed treatment. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
