Study: Housing Helps Homeless Alcoholics Drink Less

The 1811 Eastlake apartment building in Seattle

The 1811 Eastlake apartment building in Seattle houses homeless alcoholics without requiring them to stop drinking.

Fairly obvious study, although the important distinction is that the study looked at programs that did not require alcoholics to completely stop drinking in order to stay in the shelter.

After two years, “everyday” drinking was cut by about 50%. Impressive.
