The recovery movement is reshaping approaches to treatment of mental illness, substance abuse, and traumatic
stress disorders. Yet recovery principles have not been well integrated into the homeless assistance network, despite high
prevalence of mental illness, substance abuse, and trauma histories among people who are chronically homeless in the

recovery oriented care within the homeless assistance network.
