Within a multidisciplinary setting. the role of the social worker is to provide individuals in transition with community resources, such as shelter, employment, mental health needs (e.g., substance use support groups), and physical health needs, amongst other things.

Other members of the multidisciplinary team, including medical doctors and psychologists, are typically more focused on treatment, whereas the social work is more focused on facilitating the individual's transition to more independent living outside of a medical or residential setting.
