Bangor Methadone Clinic Could Expand 

One of Bangor’s methadone clinics could be expanding to take on more patients. City councilors gave preliminary approval yesterday to a request by the head of the Discovery House to take in up to 700 patients at the clinic off Odlin Road. The facility currently serves about 500 people. The director told councilors dozens of people are on a waiting list, including some who were referred there when another clinic in Rockland closed.The government operations committee okayed the idea in an unanimous vote.The full city council will weigh in on it later this month.
