In America, alcoholics go to AA. In Amsterdam, they clean the streets and get paid in beer.
The city famous for bicycles, hookers and weed has a program that gives alcoholics five cans of beer to clean the streets, according to the Times Live. The street cleaners referred to collectively in the article as "the alcoholics" get a couple of cans in the morning, two for lunch and a final one at the end of the day. They also get 10 Euros and half a pack of cigarettes.
The program is funded by the government and donations and participants have to work three days a week.
