DUNMORONS Still NIMBY’ing Over Proposed Dunmore, PA Methadone Clinic (Local)


DUNMORE, PA —I feel really bad for Debby Schmidt. Debby is the representative of Habit OPCO, the Boston-based health care organization that wants to open a methadone clinic in Dunmore.

“I don’t hide things,” Ms. Schmidt said. “I’m trying to save lives. There doesn’t seem to be any desire to learn what we do at all.”

She is fighting an uphill battle against a backward populace that seem to believe that keeping a treatment center out of their area equates to keeping “addicts” out of their community.

And what these people mean by “addicts”—I shudder to think.
