'Housing First' - Rehabilitation Communities

Ben Gilbert reports on a controversy in Massachusetts over one woman's plan to build a rehabilitation community for recovering substance abuse patients on a 50-acre plot that used to be a farm. But opponents see it less as a farm, and more as "their backyard." This report is part of NPR's year-long "Housing First" series.
