Online comment by Mr. DuMont:

When grappling with the huge issue of homelessness — with all its multifarious causes and challenges — society must focus on what interventions will tend not only to deal with "the problem" as a symptom, but what will tend to break the cycles of suffering for all.

Homeless people are motivated to use drugs and alcohol to reduce physical and emotional pain and try for some pleasure under extremely difficult conditions. Obviously, they spend their meagre funds, time, human energy and attention on getting and using these pain-reducers and pleasure enhancers only to suffer more losses and incoherence while creating many (and much) more.

We should search for interventions that have shown themselves capable of reducing pain and enhancing intelligence and the enjoyment of simple pleasures in life without negative side effects.

One striking candidate is the simple, natural, effortless Transcendental Meditation program. "TM" has has been proving itself in public schools in San Francisco and around the world. It can be learned quickly and easily and practiced wherever an individual can sit silently for twenty minutes.

Is such an elegant, profoundly beneficial ALTERNATIVE to drugs and alcohol not worth a try?

I likewise realize that the individuals who are addicts who have a solid religious confidence appear to be more effective at defeating the dependence (utilizing their "Higher Power" through projects, for example, AA). I saw numerous cases where those with solid care groups petitioning God for them as well as their own solid religious feelings were exceptionally positive powers in helping them defeat addictions
