They all need emergency

housing, they're all special.


What's so special

about a drug addict?

Why this one?

Oh, I don't know.

Every now and then

one comes along and...

You just know they

have in them to be clean.

I think this is his last shot.

He really wants to be clean

but he's got nothing.

No support system at all.

I have to get him off the street

or I'm going to lose him.


I'm not giving a spot to a user.

He's in the program.

He falls off his methadone,

he's out. Period.

He won't.

I hope.

Come on, everybody.

Come on. Woof!

Albert, this side.

- Val?

- Hey! Come in.


Welcome home.

You okay?

Yeah, but...


It's a little bit stuffy,

so just open the window.

Hot water!

Look, I've got to run.

- Keys.

- Right. Yeah.

Val, I'm...

You're welcome.

Oh, and I've put some cereal in the

kitchen, and milk in the fridge.

I don't know what to say.

Say, you're gonna

stay in the program,

and you won't miss

our next meeting.

I promise.

I promise you. I...

Cross my heart, hope to die.


I'll see you out.

Whoever is there?

You better leave!

I mean it!

I've got a weapon here!


I'm seriously armed!

That was you

making all that noise.

How'd you get in?

I see.

You're a thief, are you?

Stealing all my cornflakes?



Are you friendly?


I guess that answers that.

No, come on.

This way.

There you go.

They're a...

They're better with

a bit of milk, you see.

I'll get you some.

You're not a very good

thief, by the way.

Next time, try to be

a bit quieter.

That's the trick out here.

Come on.

Up you come, now.

Look at that.


There's going to be a family

worried about you.

You better go home now.


No, no, no, no, no.

This way.

Oh, no.

You know. I think it's time
