In a letter to the editor about a planned opioid treatment program near Jamestown, New York, Rebecca Morgan writes to object to the “Save Our Sequim” group’s scare tactics about the treatment center.
After attending the Aug. 8 presentation by the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, followed by a lengthy comment session, I wanted to compliment everyone there for a useful and civil meeting on a difficult subject,” she wrote. “But I was dismayed to receive in the mail a large postcard from the Save Our Sequim group, obviously composed before the informational meeting, and full of fear-mongering, inaccuracies, and misleading information, for example:
‘GIANT 25,000 sq. ft. Methadone Distribution Facility.’
“It would not be a Methadone Distribution Facility, but a medication-assisted treatment facility, administering one of three different drugs and including individual and group therapy, and other medical and dental services.”
