The following is based on a situation that I had to help someone with about three weeks ago. A 19 year old man who grew up in a violent and abusive home is thrown out of a rehab after 6 months of sobriety because he was caught in bed with a woman, which is strongly against the rules of the rehab program. The young man has no money (I mean no money--not even bus fare), no family, his friends are all addicts, and he is not particularly worldly wise. If you were in his situation, what would you do? (1) Steal (2) Prostitute yourself (3) Try to get into a wet shelter. (Wet shelters house active addicts and also very often house Level 3 sex offenders; dry shelters are hard to get into on short notice.) (4) Bum a fix from one of your drug addict friends so you could get into a detox, which would then place you into another taxpayer funded program. (5) Live homeless on the streets and beg and eat out of garbage cans. Believe it or not, this is reality for a surprisingly large number of people.
