Former Narco Freedom Residents Still Wait for Housing

The Daily News reported on July 31, 2017 that many former residents of three-quarter houses operated by the Narco Freedom organization are still waiting for housing. Some 370 out of 1,200 former residents have successfully moved to permanent housing since 2015. Narco Freedom’s operators, Jason and Alan Brand, were arrested on Medicaid fraud and other charges in October 2014. The Brands are accused of forcing residents into treatment in exchange for housing.
