Substance Use Disorder Provider CleanSlate Names Chris Bove CEO

Substance use disorder-focused provider CleanSlate Centers has named Chris Bove its next CEO.

Bove previously served as the chief operating officer at D4C Dental Brands. He has worked in mental health before, however. Bove’s experience includes a stint as chief operating officer of Correct Care Solutions, now Wellpath, which provides medical, mental and behavioral health services. 

A former United State Army officer, Bove has a masters degree in organizational management from the University of La Verne.


“I am honored to join the CleanSlate team and humbled by our mission to save lives,” Bove said in a statement. “The number of people suffering from addiction and mental and behavioral health challenges has skyrocketed through the pandemic.”

“CleanSlate is well-positioned to bring resources and leadership to communities and families who need our support. I am excited to be part of the CleanSlate team,” he added.

Headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, the company was founded in 2009. CleanSlate has 80 centers across 10 states. The organization provides medication-assisted addiction treatment.


This news comes after the company’s previous CEO, Greg Marotta, announced his decision to leave the role, which prompted a national search. 

“Chris is an exceptional executive leader with extraordinary passion, experience and operational skills,” Greg Roth, chairman of CleanSlate’s board of directors, said in a statement. “His patient-centered, people-first approach and focus on high-quality patient care will be important in supporting the company’s mission and growth.”

It hasn’t been all smooth sailing for the addiction treatment facility.

Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay $4.5 million to Massachusetts’ Medicaid and Medicare programs over allegations it submitted fraudulent claims and performed unnecessary patient services starting in the early 2010s.
