Building owner reports no
complaints over methadone clinic
September 27, 2009
SOUTHBRIDGE — The methadone clinic on Main Street has not caused problems since it opened in June, according to both the building owner and the company who runs it.
"It has not been a problem. They open early, the people come and go," said Attorney Robert Caprera, who owns the building at 176 Main St., where the clinic is located. "It's pretty quiet."
Daily operations have continued without incident since the facility inside the Caprera building opened Monday, June 22, according to Spectrum Health Systems Program Director Ray Coppola. His firm owns and operates it. "None," he said, referring to the number of incidents that have been reported at the facility. "No phone calls, nothing."
That is a far cry from when it was first learned the clinic would be coming here, with Police Chief Daniel Charette even saying he would prefer it be in another community.
