once again donora residents have shown that they lack common sense. this place needs any revitalization it can get. they should hold on to any person that wants to invest here. such idiots. its a treament center people, not a crack house. patients will be here to get treated not score some heroin. i hope those investors continue to seek to put the treatment center there, and im a donora resident, and property owner, so dissent is not 100%

Why doesn't the government support a beer facility instead. Free beer would spark more economic development than free meth.

So why doesn't the investors support the clinic in there own town?
And before you say something like... DUH HOW DO YOU KNOW MAYBE THEY ARE FROM DONORA...they are not, they are from Monesson and Monongahela. If you have a beef, why not ask at a borough meeting or give Chummy a call, it's in the book. Cheezz, are you still waiting for the Mills to come back too?

The people getting the methadone have to pay for it. It isn't free. I don't think Donora will have any more or less crack heads and crime than it usually does.

Folks, please read the article! An 8,00 square foot building in an industrial park does not mean seedy people will be spaced out on your front steps. "The facility would be a complete treatment center, including counselors, pharmacists, nurses and physicians" - this is not the window in a rundown building you see in the movies.
Donora needs investment. Too many vacant storefronts and too many unemployed people are what made Donora a great prospect for a reatment center in the first place. Try and build in Venetia for the same price!
It's time city council thought about the future of my town, not what their buddy is going to say at bingo.

Methadone...
...People on methadone programmes are as likely as other addicts to use heroin and commit crime, according to a study.
The research, involving Glasgow University, said those using methadone took heroin on a fewer amount of days, but they committed just as much crime.
