Peer Services is more harm than good to Evanston
I'm sure glad we don't have one of these places on Morse Avenue. On December 19, 2012, Evanston Fire and Emergency were called not once, but twice, to haul away a couple of people who got some bad legal juju, if you know what I mean.
The location of this insaneness is 906 Davis Street in Evanston.
The first incident happened about 8:00 a.m. - and the second incident happened about an hour and a half later at 9:30 a.m. Each time Emergency services in Evanston dispatched at least 6 personal at the tax-payers expenses to remove the people by stretcher who were seeking so-called treatment.
The tenants in 906 Davis Street are called Peer Services, a not-for-profit drug rehabilitation center, which is across the street from the Davis Street Metra and CTA Purple line stations; giving both city and suburban addicts easy access to whatever they're serving up inside 906 Davis.
When these patients are done they usually will hang around the building, the CTA and Metra stop for hours on end. Like I said, I'm sure glad Morse Avenue doesn't provide such services. Our police, fire and emergency personal in Rogers Park have enough to worry about.
