Creating multidisciplinary teams for mobile units

Mobile units that primarily serve homeless populations and those at risk of social exclusion are well-equipped to address certain gaps in addiction care that this population often experiences. Therefore, it is recommended to engage with this group, accompanying them to social and health resources through a multidisciplinary team that includes nursing professionals. Additionally, these units should provide harm reduction resources to individuals who could benefit from such measures.

Professional accompaniment is key to therapeutic adherence and ensuring that individuals attend their medical appointments, as well as for conducting tests such as Mantoux, viral serologies, or general blood tests.

Moreover, it is important to highlight the special significance of documenting cases of homeless women who require resources for gender-based violence. This helps to holistically address the psychosocial issues often seen in socially excluded women with active substance use.
