A company that’s been operating a mobile methadone clinic in St. Johnsbury and Newport wants to expand to Danville and Berlin.
BAART Behavioral Health Services has asked for a state permit to begin dispensing methadone at the Danville Health Center and at a site in Berlin.
One impetus for the expansion is a cap placed by the town of St. Johnsbury on the number of patients that can use the methadone service there.
The town said it would cap the number of patients at 60 until BAART expanded into a neighboring community.
BAART has now reached that cap at its St. Johnsbury site.
