It certainly doesn't fix everything, but it is a step in the right direction. Now we just need small programs that will address more populations.
Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson kicked off a new program this morning that he hopes will help homeless veterans get off drugs and back to society. Nicholson, joined with the National Drug Control Policy Director John Walters and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, cut the ribbon of the new center at 1155 Cherokee St. The 14-bed facility in the Comprehensive Addiction Rehabilitation Evaluation and Services building will allow veterans to stay up to six months and learn to beat their drug addiction.
