They don't drug or alcohol test SSI applicants, if they meet the disability requirements it should have no effect.They would get benefits here.It really likely has no impact on their eligibility , it come down to their disability separate from drug or alcohol use.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.I wish you the best with SSI this should not have any effect.
