National Opioid Addiction Treatment Leader Launches Center in Tampa

CleanSlate Expands Unique Physician-led Effort to Fight the Opioid Epidemic in Florida

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - June 19, 2017) - Officials with CleanSlate Centers, a leader in providing care to those suffering from opioid and alcohol addiction, announced today the company continues to expand local access to safe, effective, physician-led treatment with a new outpatient center in Tampa, Florida. The Tampa center, the firm's first in Florida, began seeing patients June 19.

Founded in 2009 in response to the growing opioid epidemic facing the country, CleanSlate has treated more than 14,000 patients in some of the hardest hit states by the opioid epidemic -- Indiana, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.

"The need for a better approach to managing this disease and increasing access is the reason CleanSlate was founded, and we are pleased to now be able to offer hope for more people in Florida," said Greg Marotta, President and CEO of CleanSlate Centers. "It's impossible to fight this disease alone, and we are pleased to stand side-by-side with important partners in Tampa. We look forward to deepening our relationships in the community as we all work together to beat back this undiscriminating epidemic."

Florida officials are actively working to find solutions to the state's unique place in the battle, even declaring the epidemic a public health emergency earlier this year, but there is still much work to be done. In 2010, more than 90% of the prescription opioids dispensed by doctors in the US were sold in Florida. Per CDC data, opioid misuse was the direct cause of death for Floridians in 2015.

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) -- the nation's leading addiction medicine society representing 4,000 physicians, clinicians and other professionals -- opioid addiction is defined as a primary, chronic and relapsing brain disease.

"At CleanSlate, we know that opioid addiction is best treated as the chronic disease it is," said Kelly J. Clark, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of CleanSlate and President of ASAM. "We currently treat thousands of patients for opioid and alcohol addiction in a comfortable outpatient environment with a full-time, dedicated team of physicians and advanced-practice clinicians. Our ultimate goal is to help these patients achieve the life they want and deserve -- a 'clean slate' from which to thrive."

The award-winning CleanSlate program of care includes individualized treatment plans for each patient consisting of appropriate medication treatment prescribed by physicians, clear accountability and supportive counseling. In Pennsylvania, the company's centers have been designated as Centers for Excellence by the state's governor, based on clinicians' abilities to work with behavioral health, primary care and other partners to provide integrated whole-person, evidence-based treatment.

"I am honored to be part of the CleanSlate team as we continue to expand our services into Florida," said Adam McPhee, President of Operations for CleanSlate's East Division. "Together, we are saving the lives of those who suffer from addiction. We look forward to serving anyone in Tampa in need of our support and services."
