City tries to separate itseld from moniker
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – Up and down Atlantic Avenue banners label the city a Village by the Sea.
Not far off the Ave, you can see why the New York Times labeled Delray the “Recovery Capital” in a 2007 article on the substance abuse treatment industry. White vans identify recovery residences. Drug treatment centers don’t hide.
Attorney Jeffrey Lynne represents some owners of recovery residences. He wanted to create a council within the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce for leaders in that community to collaborate.
Lynne sent out invitations for Tuesday’s inaugural meeting with the words “make Delray Beach the recovery capital once again.”
Jeffrey C. Lynne is a South Florida native, representing individuals and business entities relating to licensing, accreditation, regulatory compliance, business structure, marketing, real estate, zoning and litigation pertaining to substance abuse treatment facilities and sober living residences. Mr. Lynne has been recognized across the region as a leader in progressive public dialogue about the role that substance abuse treatment has within our communities and the fundamental need and right to provide safe and affordable housing for those who are both in treatment for addiction and alcoholism as well as those who are established in their recovery.
