Methadone Clinic Pays $1.8m to the Family of 8-year old Jacksonville Girl

A Massachusetts for- profit methadone clinic has agreed to pay the family of an eight-year-old Jacksonville girl close to $1.8 million after she died in a head on crash involving a patient form the clinic. Stephen Fairchild, 24, had been treated at the Community Health Care Inc. earlier in the day and his autopsy results showed that the level of methadone was “peaking” at the time of the head-on accident, which killed both Fairchild and Kayla Lackey. The Lackey estate sued Community Health Care Inc. and Dr. Walter Slowinski because of their care of Fairchild, who had a long history of heroin abuse and erratic driving.
