ABOUT CLEAN SLATE CLINIC
We are a for-purpose healthcare company focused on helping Australians keen to detox from alcohol, safely from home.
Our mission is to improve the health and wellness of individuals struggling with alcohol dependence, and make withdrawal (detox) and recovery services accessible to every Australian who needs them, irrespective of postcode or socio-economic status.
Our clinic is led by Dr Chris Davis, a global leader in General Practitioner alcohol withdrawal management. Working under his guidance are a team of highly trained alcohol detox nurses who provide the care you need to successfully detox from alcohol at home.
We are currently able to provide funded places for public patients from the PHN region of South Eastern New South Wales (COORDINARE), as part of a funded Proof of Concept for public patients.
This program is supported by funding from Central and Eastern Sydney PHN, COORDINARE - South Eastern NSW PHN and Sydney North Health Network, through the Australian Government's PHN Program.
Our service is otherwise available privately and we hope to be able to extend publicly funded access to other patients in the future.
