UPO to relocate its methadone clinic on the unit block of N Street NE

Somewhat stale news at this point, but worth posting here.

I attended a police/community meeting earlier this week.  In attendance was Stanley Mayes, who is currently the chair of the United Planing Organization (UPO).  He mentioned at the meeting that the UPO methadone clinic on the unit block of N Street NE would be closing.  I posted this news at the Bloomingdale Neighborhood blog (http://bloomingdaleneighborhood.blogspot.com/2009/12/stanley-mayes-upo-to-close-its.html).

One of the responses posted was from Harvey Johnson, UPO Public Awareness Director, which I have copied in below:

The Comprehensive Treatment Center, a program operated by the United Planning Organization, remains open and will soon relocate to a new location.

UPO will issue a press statement announcing the relocation at that time.

One thought on “UPO to relocate its methadone clinic on the unit block of N Street NE

  1. While I understand the clinic does serve those in need in the community, I have to say I’m pleased it’s moving. I walk down that block every morning and am always dismayed by the fact that the location forces addicts to have to congregate and mingle with all the dealers in what is essentially an open air drug market at the corner of NY Ave. and North Capitol. Hopefully a change in location will better serve the clients and be an improvement to the neighborhood.
