New Bedford, Mass. Center Manager Megan Abdullahi recently participated in the promotional video featured below for New Bedford’s International Overdose Awareness Day community event to help raise awareness about the disease of addiction and the very real threat of overdose to those battling substance use disorders. Megan has participated in the annual community event for the past three years and was asked to participate this year as a guest speaker on the impact of losing her husband to overdose and how CleanSlate services can help those in the community in need.

Megan’s personal reflection at the event on the devastating loss of her husband to overdose puts into focus why so many of us choose to be Warriors for Hope, as unfortunately most of us throughout the organization have been personally impacted by addiction. Megan’s teammates state that not only is she an amazing leader at the center and champion of the CleanSlate mission in the community, but she is also an inspiring example of perseverance. 

“Megan is truly is a living example of strength and hope, continuing to grow as a mother and woman who has lost deeply, to fight the disease of addiction in our community and beyond, for CleanSlate, and for everyone who still suffers,” said Nicole Demonico, New Bedford Clinical Director
