CINCINNATI, January 5, 2023 – Center for Addiction Treatment (CAT) announces Patti L. Webb as Interim CEO effective December 27, 2022.

Following former CEO Chellie McLellan’s exit due to a familial relocation, the Board of Directors have appointed Webb as Interim CEO until a permanent successor is chosen. Webb will utilize her extensive leadership experience garnered through her 24 years of service at CAT to continue driving the organization’s mission of saving lives and rebuilding families. Prior to this position shift, Webb was acting as the agency’s Chief Administrative Officer.

“It is with the greatest respect for our clients, team, and our Board of Directors that I’ve accepted the honor of leading Center for Addiction Treatment during this transitional period,” says Webb. “I approach the role of Interim CEO with a deep commitment and connection to this organization and the community we serve. As we continue embarking on our journey to make recovery within reach, I am fully devoted to fostering and maintaining accessible addiction services for all who seek them.” 

The organization is grateful for the dedication that former CEO McLellan provided through her tenure and looks forward to welcoming in her permanent successor when the Board of Directors makes a CEO selection.
