The existing building at 140 Haverhill Street.

The developers behind a proposed drug treatment facility on Haverhill Street in Andover are scheduled to appear before the Zoning Board of Appeals when it meets at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Medico 140 LLC received planning board approval last month for a special permit for an inpatient and outpatient drug treatment facility at 140 Haverhill Street in Andover, which it purchased for $660,000 in March 2021. 

The company, which opened a similar facility in Wilmington last year after a four-year legal challenge by neighbors and Wilmington officials, has operated its outpatient program in an existing building on the Andover property since purchasing the site. Under the special permit approved by the planning board, Medico would build a new, 9,180-square-foot facility to house the program, known as Topsail, in the new development. The building for the new inpatient program would be approximately 39,000-square-feet and have beds for 64 patients.
