San Francisco Residents Furious Over Ridiculous Handout To Homeless Population

San Francisco spends $5 million annually on the “managed alcohol program” for their homeless population. To make a long story short, the taxpayer-funded entitlement gives homeless alcoholics free alcohol. To explain the program called “MAP” for short, the central idea is harm reduction. The thought process is that chronic alcoholics need to have their disorder managed to prevent withdrawal symptoms and/or the improper consumption of the drug. One of the individuals in this program was given the equivalent of 16 vodka shots per day. Addiction recovery advocates point out the obvious, this program does not work. Managing an alcohol addiction is not the same as giving them the tools necessary to recover.
