Delray Beach candidates respond to recovery community questions

Written by:

at March 3, 2015

In October of 2014, three local nonprofit groups (Auroras Voice, Delray Mothers Against Violence, and Spady Cultural Heritage Museum) organized Addiction & Healing, a public forum at Drug Abuse Foundation. The Sun-Sentinel covered the event (see story).

The large and growing recovery community in Delray Beach continues to be of interest to many residents of Delray Beach. In an effort to further educate residents about the candidates’ understanding of the recovery community and any plans related to it, Auroras Voice asked all 6 candidates the following questions:

  1. When did Delray Beach become known as the drug rehab capital of the U.S. and how did that happen?
  2. Are people in treatment facilities here really getting better?
  3. What does the growth of sober homes in Delray mean for the average resident and what should our community do about it, if anything?
  4. What steps would you take, and by when, to better integrate the recovery community into the social and economic fabric of the City of Delray Beach?
  5. What obstacles do you see to integrating the recovery community into the City of Delray Beach?

Four candidates responded to our request ahead of the deadline. Click on the links below to see their responses.*

Cary Glickstein’s responses
Mitch Katz’s responses

*The list of responses is in alphabetical order of last name.
