That’s such a shame. I really believe in housing first without restrictions and definitely without the restriction of being sober for an entire month. People need to be housed first before they can address their other problems. It saddens me so much to imagine people being turned away just bc they’re suffering from addiction. We need to decriminalize drugs and really accept that addiction is a disease in this country, a medical condition that needs medical treatment. It needs to be treated the same as a broken leg or an ear infection. Removing the stigma and criminality would allow so many people to get the help they desperately need. It would save so many lives.
