Bangor announces settlement agreement with methadone treatment center
Attorney John Doyle discusses a settlement between the City of Bangor and Penobscot County Metro Treatment Center, allowing the center to expand its coverage to the region.
The center, which serves as many as 300 patients, might begin treating new patients the next day, said its attorney, John Doyle of Portland.
The center lacks only an update of its state permit, and clinic officials have been working on that all week, Doyle said.
“All along, my client’s primary goal was to begin treatment as soon as possible,” Doyle said Friday, “and they are pleased this agreement will finally let that happen.”
