December 30, 2008 Valparaiso – The Porter-Starke Services methadone clinic has received a three-year accreditation, according to a press release.

The clinic, which has been open since February, was awarded the accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

Getting the accreditation means the clinic meets the standards set up by the commission for similar programs, according to the release. A team studied the clinic, its policies and its practices for two days in November.

The three-year accreditation is the longest given out by the commission, according to the release. That means the clinic won’t face a similar process again for three years.

According to the release, Chief Executive Officer and President David Lomaka praised the clinic’s team for completing the process, pointing out all the steps and approvals Porter-Starke had to go through to open up the clinic, which requires federal approval.

The clinic is the 13th of its kind in the state and gives out doses of methadone and suboxone to drug addicts. They help keep users from feeling withdrawal symptoms and, in the case of suboxone, from feeling the highs of drugs.
