In Shelter Directors' Forum

VOA is operating the same way. We do not drug test but are experiencing a high rate of overdose and Narcan administrations. I am more in favor of co-locating a substance abuse (MAT) provider than implementing a drug testing procedure. As a Housing First model, I think we would be discouraging people from coming off the streets if they were drug tested. We do enter into behavioral contracts and link clients to SUD treatment services.
