Kennedy, founder of The Kennedy Forum and former member of the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis. “There are still so many Americans who need our help, but with innovative organizations like CleanSlate providing evidence-based treatments across the country, we are making great strides in tackling addiction and saving lives.”
