SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — A drug sobering center is slated to open in the spring in San Francisco.
The site at 180 Jones Street will also be developed into affordable housing in the fall of 2021.
Until then, the city plans to use the area as a refuge for those out of control on drugs.
The sobering center was the top recommendation from the recently formed meth task force.
The center will be able to serve 15 people at a time and as many as 45 people during a 24 hour period.
