Plans for a meth clinic in Bustleton

By Shannon McDonald

Northeast Treatment Centers wants to open a methadone clinic

at Grant and the Boulevard in Bustleton.

If all goes as planned, NET will open the clinic in April in the old MRI buliding, which will serve up to 300 meth addicts every day. City Councilwoman Maria Quinones-Sanchez thinks the addicts – and the community – would be better served if those who needed help could get treatment in hospitals.

Many residents are concerned about the effects the clinic could have in the neighborhood, especially given the problems other neighborhood, like Frankford are battling.

NET members will hold a community meeting tonight at the Anne Frank School at Clark and Lott streets, during which time residents can voice their concerns.
