People and police come together under positive circumstances every year for National Night Out, an event that happens across the country on the first Tuesday in August. The CleanSlate Kenosha and Racine centers were there to show our support of and continued work with local law enforcement and to help decrease the stigma surrounding addiction treatment and to be a valuable resource to the communities we serve. CleanSlate’s work with law enforcement across the U.S. is vitally important in intervening with high risk populations and helping to reach those who need addiction treatment most. 

The National Night Out program started in 1984 and since then it has brought together 38 million neighbors with local law enforcement agencies in 16 thousand communities.
