For many homeless people, as long as they’re addicted to hard drugs , especially those who have been sedated for years, I don’t think any support, temporary or permanent, or even having a decent paying job, would do. I assume many would rather just feed their addiction on the street rather than have the opportunity to have a life, and this state unfortunately has everything to do with extreme drug addiction, not their lack of drive which perhaps they may have had Unless a full transition program is provided, where by permanent housing would ONLY be provided to those who are willing to undergo random drug testing, rehab, etc... or requirements of some sort , it wouldn’t work effectively in my opinion. Some and perhaps many would enter these permanent houses , already hooked on opioids ,’and would just get sedated in a house instead of the streets
As for Maslow hierarchy of needs, I think that hierarchy looks very different from an ordinary person compared to a biologically addicted person , who’s drive and fire to live totally diffused by chemicals that numb them all day ...
