Residential treatment homes that treat alcohol and drug addiction should be near public transportation and grocery stores. Drunken drivers in this state lose their driving privileges and cannot and should not drive.

If these homes are far from basic needs, the federal requirement of reasonable accommodation, which has been used to force neighbors to accept these facilities, is not met.

Zoning should require that if they intend to treat non-drivers (who shouldn't even have a car on-site), they should be near commercial zoning with grocery stores and bus stops.
