Why were 29% of ALL newly licensed Rehabs in ALL OF CALIF. issued to homes in Newport Beach?
NEWLY ISSUED STATE LICENSES NEWPORT BEACH is... LESS than 1% of the state population, but received 29% of ALL newly licensed rehabs in California! (15 newly licensed rehabs in Newport, while a total of 52 were issued statewide from Aug. 2005 to Dec. 2006) That means 29% of all newly licensed rehab homes in California were issued in NEWPORT BEACH. 29%!! [The city of Irvine only has ONE rehab house]
NEWPORT vs. ORANGE COUNTY NEWPORT BEACH is... LESS than 3% of the Orange County population, but contains 18% of all rehabs in the county! (24 licensed homes in Newport, while there are 136 countywide) [The city of Irvine only has ONE rehab house]
NEWPORT vs. CALIFORNIA NEWPORT BEACH IS... LESS than 1% of state population but contains THREE times our share of licensed rehab houses! (24 licensed homes in Newport, while there are 895 statewide) [The city of Irvine only has ONE rehab house]
EXPLOSIVE GROWTH OF REHABS IN NEWPORT In November 2003, there were only FIVE state-licensed rehab houses (see 2003 list) in Newport Beach. As of April 2007, there were TWENTY-FOUR (and growing!). The number didn't just double or triple. NO! This is an explosive FIVE TIMES the number since late 2003. [The city of Irvine only has ONE rehab house]
ANY wonder why hundreds of Newport citizens are alarmed, dismayed and angered by the City's response to our ACTIVE concerns over the past FOUR YEARS? [some residents have been complaining since 1990!]
AND IRVINE?? Why does Irvine have only one rehab house? IRVINE HAS TOP NOTCH CITY LEADERSHIP (and NO 'dirty hands'), THAT'S WHY!!!
