Tell Your Elected Officials to Protect Our Neighborhoods
Putting corporate for-profit drug and psychiatric treatment facilities in a residential neighborhood less than 200 meters from Elementary and High Schools is a bad idea. Contact your elected officials and tell them to protect our neighborhoods.
Corporate for-profit drug treatment centers have had a problematic history in residential neighborhoods. In Bethlehem, Connecticut, residents kept escaping their facility, leading to stolen cars, missing wallets, and drunken escapades that ended with escapees passed out drunk in the middle of roads.
Across the country, corporations have exploited a loophole to open for-profit psychiatric treatment facilities in residential neighborhoods by clustering homes in a single neighborhood to maximize profits. This behavior puts our neighborhoods at risk for the sake of profit.
