Lewis Center, OH - CleanSlate Centers continues to expand access to medication-assisted treatment across the country with its newest center for opioid and alcohol addiction, in Lewis Center, Ohio.

Even prior to CleanSlate's opening, the Department of Public Health in Columbus expressed its interest in partnership. "We are very excited for CleanSlate to open in Columbus, and we feel that many of our clients could benefit from attending its program," said DPH Program Manager Greg Lanham.

by Amy Brunson | Oct 24, 2018

"There is so much stigma around addiction and so many people who are ashamed. I hear it from patients; they feel like people look down on them. I used to be one of those patients."

This is the recovery journey of Diego*, a Center Manager at one of CleanSlate's outpatient addiction medicine centers. Many of our staff came to work in the field of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) because of their personal experience with addiction, whether through their own substance use disorder or that of a loved one. We asked several of these employees to share their journeys of coping and recovery for a Pocket Guide directed towards families and friends of people suffering from addiction.

A Focus on Hope for National Recovery Month

by Amy Brunson | Sep 4, 2018

The daily headlines about the opioid epidemic are tragic and overwhelming. And the numbing news onslaught rarely even includes the other epidemic, alcoholism, which accounts for more than double the deaths each year than those from opioids. 

But the disease of addiction doesn't claim everyone it touches. Millions of Americans who once suffered from substance use disorder (SUD) have achieved recovery and gone on to completely transform their lives. These inspiring stories are common, and they don't get nearly the attention they deserve.

National Recovery Month aims to change that balance. Every September, Recovery Month provides a platform to celebrate those who have achieved recovery and to offer awareness and hope around SUD and mental health.
