This article discusses the success of the Serial Inebriate Program (SIP) in San Diego, CA. This program was created to cost-effectively divert the chronic inebriate off the street and into treatment. The goals of SIP were to: create a model that offered alcohol abuse rehabilitation as an alternative to jail time; utilize existing court proceedings to process "drunk in public" arrests; introduce chronic inebriates into the treatment community; reduce community disorder calls for police; and reduce the overall costs associated with homeless chronic inebriates.
