June 7, 2011

In August of 2008, Scott Batten, sick and emaciated, was homeless on the streets of Spokane. Batten was a veteran, an alcoholic in the last stages, and in need of help.
Batten had abused alcohol since the age of 10; he was addicted to alcohol for over 40 years. If he tried to detox, he would experience severe withdrawals lasting over nine days.
