The study examined predictors of managementproblems among residents of a supported single roomoccupancy hotel (SRO) for persons with severe andpersistent mental illness (SPMI). Case workers completed questionnaires on the prior six months. Wefound that medication-compliant residents without drugabuse were rarely disruptive, while those with co-morbidsubstance abuse were often disruptive. Residents non-compliant with medication also tended tocause management problems whether or not they abuseddrugs. Supported residences should be staffed andorganized to minimize medication non-compliance andsubstance abuse which are associated with behavioraldisruptiveness.
