We ran a story by reporter John Stucke last month about a California company's proposal to open a private-pay methadone clinic in Spokane Valley. The public hearing on their proposal will be at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at the Spokane Valley Library, 12004 E. Main.
There is currently one methadone clinic in Spokane County run by the Spokane Regional Health District and it has a lengthy waiting list. Methadone is used to treat people addicted to opiates like heroin or prescription painkillers.
The proposed location is 15812 E. Indiana, which is a commercial building east of Sullivan Road. The facility would be called Spokane Treatment Solutions.
