Ed, in the original thread, I was surprised to see the amount of support for the facility. I wonder if the supporters would want to own/rent next door to it.
So when I lived in Rumson NJ (pretty nice place) they put a treatment /sober living house in the middle of a residential neighborhood right by a school bus stop. Two people overdosed and one of them died while residing there. Needless to say the homeowners and town was in an uproar.
Well, reading the autobiography of the millionaire bass player in the rock band Motley Crue, this gentleman overdosed on heroin and was brought to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. He woke up later, ripped the IV out of his arm and ran away from the hospital in his gown. Guess where he went?To get more heroin.Still shoeless and naked.He found it, shot up, and through some twist of fate is still alive.This is the type of person you'll find in a treatment center. Not exactly where I want to spend my vacation.
Through the law of averages, if you are in an area with more criminals and persons with uncontrollable compulsive disorders per square mile than one with none, your chances of being a victim increases exponentially. Don't forget, I'm not carrying a gun so I have less of a chance murdering another human than you do. If it's all the same to you, I'd rather be next to somebody's quiet grandparents for my week in solitude. I assure you, I don't bother a soul while I'm on vacation.
