Fox News is reporting that authorities in San Francisco are experimenting with a new program to address the strain alcoholics experiencing homelessness are putting on city services:

“The City of San Francisco is providing free beer and vodka shots to homeless alcoholics at taxpayer expense under a little-known pilot program.”

“The ‘Managed Alcohol Program’ operated by San Francisco’s Department of Public Health serves regimented doses of alcohol to voluntary participants with alcohol addiction in an effort to keep the homeless off the streets and relieve the city’s emergency services. Experts say the program can save or extend lives, but critics wonder if the government would be better off funding treatment and sobriety programs instead.”
