At first, companies desperately fought orders to acquire permits, citing fair-housing laws that classify addicts as handicapped and shield them from being singled out by public policy.

But after a judge suggested much of the city law would likely pass legal muster, officials had leverage to ink deals that downsized Sober Living by the Sea, the town's largest addiction-treatment firm, and guaranteed the closure of a much-maligned triplex run by Narconon. A tentative legal settlement could scale back the second-largest company, Morningside Recovery.
