Abstract

People with disabilities experience many barriers when attempting to gain employment. Substance Use Disorders (SUDS) is one particular challenge that has been identified in this research paper. Individuals with SUDS experience an increase in unsucessful case closures in state funded vocational rehabilitation agencies. Screening for SUDS has been overlooked in many agencies and his paper intends to identify barriers of a screening protocal in state VR and provide recommendations for subcontracted-state comprehensive vocational evaluation programs to contribute to screening for SUDS.
