The Opioid Epidemic
According to a study released in 2011 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 12 million American teens and adults reported nonmedical use of prescription pain medication within the past year in 2010, resulting in nearly 15 thousand overdose deaths that year (an average of forty every day). This staggering figure has tripled since 1999 and is now responsible for more fatalities than heroin and cocaine combined.
CleanSlate Centers was founded to respond to this growing epidemic. The availability of quality treatment for those struggling with addiction is limited, and increasing access to comprehensive care is imperative for patient success.
At CleanSlate, our office-based programs provide effective and compassionate treatment using Suboxone and Vivitrol. Through medical assistance and required participation in behavioral therapy our treatment programs are transforming lives.
