Suboxone Clinic Coming to 4949 Frankford Aveenue

Across from Aria Hospital, it seems like a logical place. Read the story here in the City Paper.  I admit I didn’t know what suboxone is until I read this story.

There is talk about the lack of regulation of this type of business.

Lawmakers say that it’s time there was more transparency and community input around the opening of clinics like this, which are distributing controlled substances. Councilman Mark Squilla, who was involved in dealing with the Lower Moyamensing location, says he wants to call hearings in the fall to investigate the issue, and has been discussing it with his fellow City Council members. He thinks such clinics should be allowed only by special zoning exception, rather than by right.

Does Frankford have enough of these types of businesses?   Time to go on alert.
