Abstract

The study reported in this article is of a systematic random sample of 600homeless Vietnam veterans, ages 46 to 65, who abuse substances, many of whom are comorbid with psychological afflictions. All of these veterans were in a Midwestern residential program for homeless substance abusers at the time of the interview. Cox's proportional-hazards model was used to estimatethe relative rate of rehospitalization (hazard function) across the follow-up interval of two years by the predictors. The ecological predictors include, but are not limited to, demographic characteristics, history of drug and psychiatric treatment, psychological afflictions, abuse before 18 years of age, inner strengths, social support, religiosity and direct combat experience in Vietnam. The range of ecological factors investigated presents more comprehensive findings for future conceptual models and for more thorough social work intervention.
