Meeting Planned to Discuss Proposed Lewiston Methadone Clinic | Maine News, Sports, Weather – Portland, ME – WPFO FOX23 – MyFOXMaine.com | Maine

I  love this!~  A bowling alley (that most likely sells beer) is worried about the clinic being next to them!  Talk about NIMBY!

Meeting Planned to Discuss Proposed Lewiston Methadone Clinic

By News 13

Barring a weather cancellation, a meeting is planned tonight between concerned Lewiston residents and Community Substance Abuse Centers, the Massachusetts company behind a proposed methadone clinic in town.
Community Substance Abuse Centers scheduled the meeting for neighboring businesses, owners, and tenants to discuss their plans to open a facility on Mollison Way. The location has raised concerns among residents, including the manager of the neighboring bowling alley.
The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Ramada Inn on Pleasant Street.

    IGNORANCE BREEDS FEAR. THINK ABOUT THIS FOLKS. ALCOHOL IS A DRUG. YOU’VE GOT PEOPLE NEARBY WHO ARE IN ACTIVE ADDICTION AND SOMEHOW YOU FEEL SAFE WITH THAT. BUT A METHADONE CLINIC WHERE PEOPLE ARE WILLINGLY HAVING THEIR ADDICTION TREATED SENDS YOU OVER THE TOP? I AM A METHADONE RECIPIENT. IN THE 6 YEARS THAT I’VE BEEN IN TREATMENT, I HAVE BECOME CLEAR THINKING AND PRODUCTIVE AND I SMILE A LOT. I HAVE SEEN SO MANY PEOPLES’ LIVES CHANGE FOR THE BETTER. FOLKS GO BACK TO COLLEGE, THEY BECOME LOVING PARENTS, THEY GET AND KEEP JOBS AND ARE CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR COMMUNITY. WHAT’S SCARY ABOUT THAT?
