The Marina Harbor Detox (289 Marina Blvd.) is a drug addiction treatment center that reportedly opened without proper city certification. Neither a proper Change of Use Permit nor a Conditional Use Authorization were acquired by the detox center before it began operation, sources say. The Planning Department is believed to be investigating and may pursue enforcement action against the business.
In a statement to the Marina Times, the detox center said, “Marina Harbor Detox abides by all state and local laws and zoning restrictions.” The company also shared a written presentation indicating exceptions to zoning and licensing laws depending on the size of a center’s client base.
