Press Release: WASHINGTON, DC – October 18, 2010 – The United Planning Organization at 33 N Street NE announced the relocation of its Comprehensive Treatment Center to the grounds of the former DC General Hospital, 1900 Massachusetts Avenue, SE Washington, DC. The UPO CTC facility is located in Building 13 on the campus.
“We believe our new location is much more conducive to UPO’s ultimate goal of assisting
DC residents overcome opioid addictions, while at the same time helping their families
better deal with the many problems associated with those addictions,” observed Frances
Bowie, director of UPO’s newly formed Community Health Division.
The Comprehensive Treatment Center provides medically-managed treatment to opiate
dependent individuals. CTC is a provider of substance abuse services under a grant from the District of Columbia Department of Health, Addiction Prevention and Recovery Program and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
Newly appointed acting center director Brenda Kelly says patients are currently
transitioning to the new location for services.
