JC Methadone Clinic Saga Continues
The company wanting to open a methadone clinic in Johnson City is not giving up without a fight. In April, a lawsuit by Tri-Cities Holdings, LLC against the city was thrown out and in June, the Tennessee Health Services and Development agency denied a certificate of need. Now they’ve reached out to the Civil Rights Division of the US Department of Justice. The company claims nearly 1,000 people in our region are in need of their help for opiate addiction and currently have to drive over an hour to get treatment, a drive they say is unnecessary. The company hopes the federal investigation will show an invalid zoning ordinance by the city. If the DOJ determines Johnson City is in violation of federal law, they could withhold $800,000 in grant money aimed to fight crime reduction. The DOJ submitted a list of questions to the city and given attorneys 15 days to respond to in the inquiry.
