Straight Inc.'s drug treatment center for adolescents is having a difficult time settling into its new home in Columbia.

The program continues to run into regulatory troubles with Maryland authorities. It has suffered high staff turnover as a result of its move from Virginia. And Straight Inc. officials are having a hard time finding new clients; the center's enrollment, which stood at 52 clients in July, has dropped to fewer than 40.

Straight Inc. went a couple of days without telephone service earlier this month. An official said a bookkeeping error left a bill unpaid. Service has since been restored.
