Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio A drug and alcohol treatment center in Bluffdale is moving forward, while residents living next to the center say they've been kicked to the side.

Maureen Johnson walks through her backyard, looking at the large house just over the fence. That house has now been given approval to become a treatment center. "It should be not right amongst a school or children in a residential area," Johnson said.

Bluffdale City was in a lawsuit against the center, but both sides now have settled by outlining what security measures have to be in place at the center.

However, that doesn't sit well with Johnson and her neighbors. "Bluffdale has not played fair with the citizens here, none at all," one neighbor said.

Some neighbors are still working with attorneys to try to find a way to stop the center, or at least cut down the number of patients allowed to live there.
