What is low barrier housing and how does it work?
Low-barrier housing doesn’t require a person to have good credit, a clean criminal background, or even be in good health. But when you give a person housing, they no longer have to worry about their safety because they’re sleeping in a car or under a bridge. They don’t have to worry about hygiene and health because they have access to hot showers. And they don’t have to worry about what will happen to their possessions because they have a space of their own to store their belongings.
In other words, spending more on reducing barriers to care and housing, and improving the quality of treatment so that people with addiction actually want to participate is far more effective than other measures.
