Richmond, VA –November 22, 2021: Today, CleanSlate Centers (CleanSlate) opens its newest location at Richmond Community Hospital, at 1510 N. 28th Street, Ste. 101, Richmond, Virginia 23223. The new center will also be hosting an Open House event for community members and medical professionals on Tuesday, December 14, 2021, where attendees will have the opportunity to tour the facility.
“We’re very proud to be opening our newest center in the East End and are committed to working with Richmond Community Hospital to serve the community with this new location. People need accessible and affordable options for addiction treatment and mental health support amid the opioid crisis,” said Ellen Alexander, President of Operations for the Eastern Division of CleanSlate Centers. “The opening of the Richmond center marks another milestone in our goal to break down long-held stigmas around the chronic disease of addiction and to facilitate greater access to low-cost, evidence-based care in every state and every community, whether it is rural, suburban or urban.”
Stephen Popovich, M.D., Medical Director of the Richmond Area, is also eager for the new opportunity to serve those afflicted with addiction in the East End, stating, “this area is among the most stigmatized regions in our city. A historical lack of treatment options for those struggling with addiction has contributed to a disproportionate amount of death, incarceration, and destruction in our community. We hope to make an impact by bringing compassionate treatment to patients and being effective partners with other providers in the area.”
