Onita Washington-Lackey

Care Coordinator

Where are you based?

 Onita: Noblesville, Indiana

 How long have you been with CleanSlate and how has your role evolved over time?

 Onita: I started at CSC 3 years ago at Indy North, where “patients first” was exemplified in day to day activities. There was an expectation for excellence while serving our patients in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, where there were many needs and not enough resources. My time there prepared me for assuming the role of the only care coordinator at CSC for the state of Indiana for a brief period.  At the same time, I continued to provide support at the Noblesville center when we were a very small office. We have grown so much since then.

 Why CleanSlate?

 Onita: Because of their innovative treatment response to the opioid epidemic during a time when insurance companies didn’t want to approve inpatient admissions for opioid detox.

 Can you share a fun or interesting fact about yourself that your coworkers might be surprised to learn?

 Onita: If I can save a dollar by trying to fix something myself, I will try.  It might take me awhile, but I sure will try. I draw the line at electrical repairs.

 What book, movie, or TV show are you currently obsessed with?

 Onita: I love shows where people are getting pranked.

 If you could pick up a new skill in an instant, what would it be?

 Onita: Learning a foreign language.

 Do you have any advice for newcomers to the team?

 Onita: Don’t be so hard on yourselves. My experience has been that it takes at least six months before you feel like you know what you’re doing.

How long have you been with CleanSlate and how has your role evolved over time?

Heather Berry

Center Supervisor

Where are you based?

Heather: I am based out of Williamsport, PA.

How long have you been with CleanSlate and how has your role evolved overtime?

Heather: I have been with CleanSlate almost 5 years. I will celebrate 5 years in October 2023. I started out as a MA/MR and have moved to Center Supervisor of the Williamsport office and our satellite office in Mansfield, PA.

Why CleanSlate?

Heather: I chose CleanSlate because I wanted to have a bigger impact in the healthcare industry as well as help people on a different level. I want to be challenged on a daily basis.

What is the most fulfilling part of your job?

Heather: The most fulfilling part of my job is seeing people at rock bottom who come to us and feel like they have no hope in life left and we help them turn it around. We help them from the moment they walk through the door and make them feel like they matter (because they DO). We provide them with the tools and resources to climb to the top. We encourage them at every visit to keep succeeding and to not look behind but forward. Even a small step is a step in the right direction.

Do you have any advice to newcomers to the team?

Heather: My advice to newcomers is not come to work expecting every day to be easy. Working in addiction medicine is seeing patients struggle on a daily basis, but also seeing them rise and survive. You have to be able to listen and hear what is being said, encourage them but also hold them accountable for their actions. You have to be able to handle all the emotions and react accordingly. You will become attached to our patients and you will become their biggest cheerleaders.

What is the project or task you’re most proud of during your tenure here?

Heather: I am most proud of the office “Encourage Me” board. It started out as a place where patients could write down something that means something to them. From who encourages them in their recovery, to words of encouragement to other patients or an achievement in their recovery. It has evolved to include wooden painted letters done by staff with vertical and horizontal words that cross and mean something when combined. The first part of the board is where you start in recovery to the middle to the end. I also throw out fun facts of the day in the morning huddle as well as treat staff to national food days (most recently, national chocolate ice cream day).

Describe your work style in three words?

Heather: I would say motivated, organized and adaptable.

Can you share a fun or Interesting fact about yourself that your co-workers might be surprised to learn?

Heather: I attended private Catholic schools since 3rd grade, lived in 6 different states, was valedictorian of my graduating class for MA school, and am addicted to true crime anything.

What book, movie, or TV shows are you currently obsessed with?

Heather: Obsessed with anything true crime related. I am currently reading Slender Man. Constantly watching true crime shows such as Snapped, Cold Justice or Dateline.

Can you describe what an average day looks like for you?

Heather: My day starts by getting to the office by 6:30am. I prepare the office for the day, look over schedules again, order any office supplies, and view reports or spreadsheets. I then check for any injections or other medications that need to be ordered or scheduled for delivery. I support office staff as needed. I usually leave around 4:30 to head to my instructor position at a local college.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant, what would it be?

Heather: I would pick to be a scientist or chemist so I could market a cure for cancer. This would be available to anyone diagnosed with cancer no matter their ability to pay or not.

Now, I am currently a Lab MA Travel Trainer, not only within my state but throughout the company for Lab MA trainings. I have to give gratitude to those that helped and encouraged me along the way.

Why CleanSlate?

When I interviewed, Matt explained CleanSlate’s mission and what the company did to help people fighting addiction. I knew I wanted to be part of what was being offered and a place to grow.  But I was also nervous because I was being asked to fly to Massachusetts alone for training.
