Manhattan Law Would Force City to Alert Neighbors on Methadone Clinic Openings

New legislation has been proposed that would require the city to notify local community boards of plans to open methadone clinics in the wake of a failed attempt to bring a clinic to lower Manhattan last year.

The bill Councilwoman Margaret Chin is set to introduce would force the city’s Health Department to contact community boards and the City Council about any plans to open methadone clinics when the department is first contacted by the state Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services for certification.
