I read with great interest the article in last week’s Observer about the possibility of a drug rehab center going into the Ocean View Convalescent Center in Long Beach. A large contingent of people throughout the Peninsula has been very vocal in their opposition to a drug rehab facility being established in Ocean Park a block away from an elementary school and across the street from a public library. From day one we have pushed for such a facility to be housed in the OVCC, a vacant building that is perfectly suited to the needs of a detox/rehab program.

It is my sincerest wish that the Long Beach City Council will see their way clear to approve this project as quickly as possible; the need for such a facility is huge.
