Would you let a friend with a drug problem live with you to prevent him from being homeless?


I am faced with a dilemma, do I help a friend and open my home while he is in crisis, knowing he has a criminal record and drug problem or turn a blind eye to the situation, knowing he might end up on the streets?

    chef-de-jour, you nailed this one. I would add one thing, that the person commit to treatment--immediately. But personally, I've let alcholics stay at my house and it just aids and abets their cause--staying drunk. And heroin addicts--they'll steal.
