Development or treatment?
Years ago the decision was made to close Dorothea Dix ... Collectively discussed was whether this priceless piece of real estate should be park land, condos, offices or

kudzu over Raleigh.
Conspicuously absent from the discussion is the asking of a simple question: Are mental patients better off as a result of closing Dix?
