Co-Founder & Chief Exec – Clean Slate Clinic

Clean Slate Clinic is the only organisation offering home-based alcohol detox fully via telehealth across Australia, enabling people to safely go through alcohol withdrawal within the comfort of their own home, supported by a specialist clinical team.  Excessive alcohol use is widespread, with 1 in 4 people in Australia drinking at risky levels.  Being able to access withdrawal within your own home helps to overcome barriers of cost, access as well as stigma and shame.  An independent evaluation has shown the service to be highly adoptable, safe and effective, and service data to date indicates that relapse rates are significantly lower than comparable face-to-face programs at 6 months post completion.

Clean Slate Clinic is currently raising capital via a SAFE round to enable scaling up of operations and proof of concept.
