Our guest tonight is Susan Collins Ph.D. of the University of Washington Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences who will be talking to us about her research on wet housing. Her studies show that homeless alcoholics who are allowed to drink in wet housing significantly reduce their alcohol consumption when compared to homeless alcoholics living on the streets. Moreover wet housing costs the city only a fraction of what it costs for alcoholics to live on the streets.
