Anyone who has seen the hit TV series “The Wire” will be familiar with the corner of Pennsylvania Ave & North Ave. It’s the hub of Baltimore’s drug trade, both in the drama, and in real life.
But it’s also at the heart of a grass roots recovery movement in the city. Penn North is one of 3 “Threshold” Recovery Centers. It’s open from 9am to 2am each day (And no that’s not a misprint!)
Blaize Duggan & Benjamin Martin spoke with me about what the Center provides.
