MFY on the Importance of Protections for Three-Quarter House Tenants

In an article in Behavioral Healthcare Executive, MFY Staff Attorney Matthew Main spoke about the importance of recent City Council legislation that increased protections for three-quarter house residents, especially the law prohibiting three-quarter house operators from compelling residents to attend treatment programs or get medical services. Operators often get kickbacks from treatment providers and then evict tenants once they have completed a program or suggest that they relapse in order to keep a roof over their heads.
