Rehab center could be dangerous for residents

A drug, alcohol and mental illness facility located near the school complex and other children-related facilities has been approved on first vote. Will this facility treat patients with mental problems such as child molestation and addiction to pornography and sex? When serious mental illness is combined with the co-morbidity of drug or alcohol addiction, it produces "a volatile mixture for violence," according to The Journal of the American Medical Association. Smuggled drugs and drug dealers outside these facilities are major problems for these centers. This risk will exist to some extent. Are not drugs and violence enough of a problem for schools without facilitating a potential threat?
