(Toledo, OH) Toledo City Council rejected an outpatient drug clinic on Reynolds Road near Hill Avenue Tuesday night.
The methadone clinic also had been recommended for disapproval by the Toledo plan commission and a city council committee, even though city officials are seeking drug treatment operations closer to the central city to help with Toledo’s opioid epidemic.
Now the Toledo Plan Commission is being asked to approve another drug and alcohol treatment center.
Comprehensive Counseling is seeking a special use permit for the treatment clinic along Monroe Street next to I-475. But the center may get opposition because it is located directly across the street from the Old Orchard neighborhood. The nonresidential clinic would be open every day but Sunday, but be closed by mid-afternoon.
Comprehensive Counseling operates seven such clinics in Illinois and is already licensed in Ohio. The clinic's operator already is working to buy the triangle-shaped property. Plan commission staff are recommending approval.
