This week we applaud the dedication of two CleanSlate Centers as they put patients first this Thanksgiving to help make the holiday a little more merry for those on their journey to recovery.  

Center Manager Jody Clark and the Norfolk, Virginia CleanSlate team this week provided a full Thanksgiving spread to patient families in need of some holiday cheer! The smile on the little girl’s face in the photo below really says it all!

The Arlington, Texas team also showed their gratitude for patients this Thanksgiving by sharing a holiday meal with them. 

“I thought it would be a great idea to celebrate with patients and show how much we are thankful for them and their road to recovery,” said Rita Allender, MA/MR. “It was a huge hit and success all around. They were very grateful as some of our patients may spend the holidays alone. Just this small gesture made them realize how much CleanSlate has helped them on this journey.”
