Attorney hopeful Bangor methadone clinic expansion can begin soon
John Doyle of Preti Flaherty, attorney for the Penobscot County Metro Treatment Center, expressed hope on Monday that city officials will soon allow an expansion of the center’s methadone clinic in Bangor.
Doyle said the city and center are involved in “active discussions with a view toward resolving the lawsuit” filed by Penobscot County Metro. U.S. District Court Judge John Woodcock found partly in favor of the center in a preliminary ruling he released earlier this month.
“They are positive discussions, and we are hopeful that we can begin the expansion soon,” Doyle said Monday night after the City Council discussed Woodcock’s decision in executive session for about an hour.
