Yes, I oppose, but only the location. I know Baltimore County is in need of methadone clinics, however, a residential area, is NOT the answer. I've seen what stumbles out of the one in Towson and it's not pretty. Legal heroin, dispersed to already, wigged out individuals is not a good thing on a corridor that houses families, restaraunts, etc. I agree with others; this type of treamtent is best in a clinical or hospital setting. That way when clients leave the premises, they feel as though they are leaving a treatment center, not someone's home. The setting is all wrong for Dundalk. Is there anything any of us can do at this point?

I totally disagree.
There is a major need in that area.
Ultimately-it will only help the area in the long run.

I absolutely agree. You can not ignore Dundalk's huge herione problem by sweeping it under the rug. This will make it more available to the addict living with in Dundalk, and there are plenty. This clinic is part of a solution to an already existing problem. These people opposing this really need to open their eyes and take a walk outside. HELLO! You have strip clubs patrons that sell Herione, Cocaine, and all sorts of illegal subtances right there in your face now. How is this going to make anything worse? Answer: It's not! I have seen first hand the drug trafficing at these strip clubs, in North Point village, Berkshire, West Inverness, etc... Not too mention other places such as outside stores, on porch fronts, corners, etc.. Wake up people.

i go to a clinic (glenwood life) and i have to say it has helped me so very much. i can understand these people not wanting a meth. clinic in there neighborhood but i also believe the residents should give it some time...hopefully crime and drugs and all that dumb shit will go away and if it doesnt then start bitching but you have to give these people a chance..us drug addicts are the same as anyone else only insteade of having cancer or a broken leg we have a substance abuse problem that needs help being fixed.

West Inverness does not have a strip club near there or in there.

I just started at the clinic in North point and so far it has helped me incredibly. I thank God that I have finally agreed to do something... SOME THING, and it seems to be working. The people that go there arent trying to rip you off they are trying to get help. And Methadone is by far not "legal heroin" at all, that is just silly and the person who wrote that isn't quite as educated as he or she thinks. Methadone if anything really an truly is like a medication. You dont get "high" at all. I think that most of us will acknowledge that we brought this problem on ourselves but at least we are trying to do something. I know that I was messed up, that I let my friends down as much as I think they let me down. I mean who can blame them. But worst of all I hurt my family, my mother. But I now know what I have to do and it doesnt have to be permanent, we can all make it and have just as bright of a future as anyone. BD Methadone clinic is cool in my book.
