Physical Health, Mental Health, and Substance Abuse Problems of Shelter Users.
Harris, Shirley N.; And Others
Health & Social Work, v19 n1 p37-45 Feb 1994
Examined physical health of 72 users of homeless shelters, comparing shelter users with mental illness or substance abuse problems with those without these problems. Found that alcohol abusers were significantly more likely to have low blood pressure, symptoms of liver disease, and tuberculosis treatment history. Found no health differences for those with or without history of psychiatric hospitalization. (Author/NB)
