During their last regular meeting, the South Padre Island City Council held a public hearing regarding the approval of a new Specific Use Permit for a substance abuse treatment facility proposed on the Island. Based on consideration of current city ordinances and compliance standards for state and federal discrimination laws, the City Council approved the permit for Outcomes Detox and Recovery Center.
Businessman and Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Jorge Guevara, who owns Medical Associates of Brownsville as well as the only clinic on South Padre Island, has obtained state licensing to expand his Brownsville detox and recovery facility to South Padre Island. The proposed location for the facility is located at 5508 Padre Blvd., which lies between Kelly’s Irish Pub and Treasure Trove Consignments, a resale shop and licensed firearm dealer.
