Fw: Methadone clinic at 7900 Frankford Avenue

Letter from Fred Moore, President of Holmesburg Civic Association, to Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz.

Subject: Methadone clinic at 7900 Frankford Avenue


Congresswoman Schwartz,
News of a proposed "methadone clinic" to be located at 7900 Frankford Ave, one block south of Rhawn and Frankford, has shaken the Holmesburg/Mayfair community in Northeast Philadelphia to the core. This is the heart of Holmesburg with many nearby churches, schools, daycares, library, firehouse, and a vast network of single family dwellings and small businesses. We are all struggling to sustain a foothold in these trying social and economic times. The stigma associated with "methadone clinics" has resulted in extremely negative expectations, perhaps even the death knell of our community. In addition to the many well documented reports of abuse and misuse at "methadone clinics" our ignorance and fear of the unknown are fueling the blazes of outrage. The ignorance is not entirely of our own making. Numerous attempts have been made over the past 6 months - since January 2011 when the Phila L&I permit was posted - to get information on what kind of medical practice was planned for the 7900 Frankford Ave facility, to no avail. There has been absolutely no transparency or the slightest attempt on the part of the medical facility or anyone associated with it to reach out to the community. Quite the opposite has been the case.
It is now confirmed at this late date (as of last Wed, July 13) that an application has indeed been submitted to the PA Dept of Health for a license to distribute narcotics (ie, methadone) at the as yet to open medical facility at 7900 Frankford Ave. The State DAPL (Drug and Alcohol Program Licensure) approval is only one of the government agencies needed to get the clinic up and running. There are also two Federal agencies that must approve the application, DEA and CSAT.
The Holmesburg and Mayfair Civic Associations have banded together to oppose in the strongest possible terms this potentially fatal injection into the center of our residential communities and the vital Frankford Ave business corridor.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
A meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 26 at 6 PM at Lincoln High School. Your attendance would be much appreciated.
Fred Moore
President
Holmesburg Civic Assn
Please see attachments.
FYI: An on-site rally at 7900 Frankford Ave is also scheduled for 5:30 PM, Tuesday, July 19. Tomorrow.

Oh I hope that does not happen. The nighborhood is already changing. That would make it worse. As a trauma nurse I can say when it comes to heroin, once an addict always an addict. Just in a different way.....

So the healing way will be opening, and it is complete BS. I wish i could refuse to pay city/state taxes because of this failure by the city/state. Complete garbage. Thanks for the let down Philly, PA.

once an addict always an addict is complete bullshit!!!! I hope it opens because there is alot of people out there that need help especially our kids!!!!

If your a trauma nurse and thats your belief than you dont know nothing about addiction. We all can recover and your thoughts are based on the people who misuse the treatment. If used as directed and the effort of change is put in, then a positive outco e will cone of it. I HOPE IT OPENS. Not allowing people of substance abuse to have a chance to recover just beacuse of what you heard or read. EVERYONE DESERVES A CHANCE AND IF YOU DONT BELIEVE SO THEN MOVE TO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

Methodone SAVED my life... Im a known member of our community and you would NEVER know I was on it if you talked to me...
The nodding people see with Methodone is NOT from Methodone alone its a mixture of that and benzos....
A deadly cocktail... If someone is regulated correctly you can't tell they are on it.
The reason you don't see the pines that are doing what they are supposed to is cause they go get their meds do their therapy and go back to their lives... Taking care of children... Working... Volunteering in the community... And so on...
So mayfair GET EDUCATED AND REMOVE YOUR STUCK UP ATTITUDE BECAUSE HEROIN IS A HUGE ISSUE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD RIGHT NOW.
