?We are excited to contract with PHP and further expand access to effective treatment in Indiana,? says Ned Pucek, President of West Division Operations for CleanSlate. ?The epidemic has created a great need for the type of treatment we provide in Indiana, which ranks in the top third among states in terms of opioid death rates in the country. We appreciate PHP?s commitment to the communities they serve, and we urgently look forward to serving any PHP members in need of our support and services.?
