Typically, homeless shelters are “dry” shelters: guests intoxicated by drugs and alcohol are not allowed entrance. Slowly, though, we are hearing word of more and more “wet” shelters where guests can enter and stay, even if they are under the influence. Some group homes are taking this concept a step further and allowing their residents to drinking inside the house under the supervision of addiction counselors.

What do you think of the concept of a “wet house?” Should more group homes and transitional houses rethink the way they operate?
