Citizens Against Methadone Clinic

We are raising funds to fight the proposed relocation of a BAART Methadone Clinic  from Central Richmond to the center of our El Sobrante business district.  The relocation is BAD FOR PATIENTS AND BAD FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS.

*  The clinic will move from the center to the outskirts of Richmond. This vulnerable patient population thus has to travel further to access service compared to the current site. Only 3% of the patient population is local.

* Patients and local residents will contend with heavy traffic.  Peak traffic to clinic will occur in early morning hours when San Pablo Dam Road is most congested, reducing patient access and adding to the commute burden for local residents.

*  The proposed site lacks  medical, social and law enforcement support  for clinic patients.

* Lack of public transportation and inadequate parking for patients.

* The proposed clinic site is next to a residential neighborhood,  a day care center and a church

HOW WILL WE USE THESE FUNDS

We will use these funds to hire a consultant and/or attorney knowledgable about City of Richmond and Contra Costa County regulations who will assist us in fighting the location of this clinic in our neighborhood.

Unused funds not spent for this purpose will be returned to the donor in proportion to their donation.
