Residents push back against construction of methadone clinic

The Columbia Spectator reports on another methadone program being placed in Harlem and quotes from Shawn Hill, one of GHC’s co-founders.

“The opioid addiction is a national crisis. It transcends class; it transcends race; it transcends gender; it transcends geography; and yet time and time again, the location of those facilities is not transcending those factors. The location is always in low-income communities of color,”

The article refers to a new, Argus run methadone program, licensed by OASAS, and located on West 145th Street.
