National Opioid Addiction Treatment Leader Launches Center in Glendale

CleanSlate Opens First of Several Centers in Wisconsin, Commits to Working with All Insurers so that Treatment is Available to All in Need

GLENDALE, WI--(Marketwired - July 17, 2017) - CleanSlate Centers, a leader in providing care to those suffering from opioid and alcohol addiction, announced today the company will continue to expand local access to safe, effective, physician-led treatment with a new outpatient center in Glendale. The center, located at 377 West River Woods Parkway, will begin seeing patients July 17.

Founded in 2009 in response to the growing opioid epidemic facing the country, CleanSlate has treated more than 19,000 patients in some of the states hit hardest by the opioid epidemic. With over 6,000 active patients being treated at 29 centers across eight states, the national medical group continues to underscore its commitment to expanding access to those in need of treatment through aggressively growing its footprint.

The new Glendale center is the organization's first in Wisconsin, where more people died from opioid overdoses than car crashes in recent years. CleanSlate officials have shared plans for additional centers in the state and asserted a willingness to work directly with all insurance plans in Wisconsin to ensure anyone seeking care is able to receive it.

"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 people in Wisconsin," said Greg Marotta, President and CEO of CleanSlate Centers. "It's impossible to fight this disease alone, and we are proud to stand side-by-side with important partners in and around Glendale. We look forward to deepening our relationships in the community as we all work together to beat back this undiscriminating epidemic."

Opioid-related overdose death rates have doubled in Wisconsin over the last decade, and the rate of babies born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) has quadrupled in the same period.

"There is no denying the need for increased access to effective, outpatient opioid treatment in Wisconsin," said Ned Pucek, President of West Division Operations. "Together, with our great community partners, we will continue to save lives of those who suffer from addiction. We look forward to serving anyone in the Glendale area in need of our support and services."

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.
