Zoning Board Dismisses Methadone Clinic Request

The proposed clinic would’ve been located next door to an elementary and middle school.

A zoning board dismissed a request to operate a methadone clinic near a Charles Village school when the applicant failed to appear at a hearing Monday.

Juliet Adetunji was scheduled to appear before the Municipal and Zoning Appeals Board on Tuesday at 1 p.m., but she never showed up, and her request to operate "health care clinic, mental health, substance abuse treatment and counseling services" at 2541 St. Paul Street was dismissed.

Before the board ruled to dismiss the zoning request, Steve Crouch, the building’s manager, said that neither he nor the building’s owner knew, or approved for anyone to pursue operating a methadone clinic at the property.

Crouch said the building is currently leased to Isaac Ogunsola & Co. CPA, and that their lease agreement does not allow for any subleasing of the property. He told the board that when he tried to get a hold of Adetunji the phone number she listed on the zoning application was the same for the CPA office.  

Parents and school advocates for Margaret Brent Elementary/ Middle School were horrified to find out about the application for a methadone clinic so close to the school.

Nice blog and i read good information about methadone. Methadone maintenance treatment provides the heroin addict with individualized health care and medically prescribed methadone to relieve withdrawal symptoms, reduces the opiate craving, and brings about a biochemical balance in the body. Important elements in heroin treatment include comprehensive social and rehabilitation services. For more details: <a href=”http://www.methadone-clinic.com”> Methadone Clinic </a>

I hope they don't have junkies hanging around the meth center like they do at the one on Glenwood Ave near the 5200 block of York Rd.

Alot of meth centers like NewHope on Baltimore St. have alot of pill sellers who buy for the cocktail right in front of the centers. But they now have at least one cop patroling on foot only causing these people to walk either up or down the street to sell or buy anything they want or need.
