There's a preschool right on Washington street. This street is like an alley and a treatment center would be better served on a busy city block where there are lots of people walking around and businesses. This is residential other than the preschool. NOT a good place for a treatment center.

    12 months ago Comments: Too many young children and teenagers on the streets due to the close proximity of schools and parks, combined with not enough police patrolling (the officers stay at their designated spots near the site and the museum and DO NOT move) and the no end in sight construction in the immediate area, combine to make 2 Washington Street a terrible location for the population this facility will be servicing. This is a heavily residential area with a large number of schools. The elected officials tasked with keeping our community safe need perhaps to take a tour of our neighborhood, as clearly they are unfamiliar with it.
