Typically residents of institutions that provide more than 50% of three meals daily are ineligible for SNAP benefits. Drug and alcohol treatment centers are an exception to this rule.

Residents - with or without their children - of a drug or alcohol treatment center ARE eligible to participate in SNAP.

Additionally, clients who provide verification of their residency at a drug or alcohol treatment center or Sober House are also exempt from both the General SNAP Work Requirements and ABAWD Work Program.
