Yes, the program is called alien.  You can find more information at

Note that there may be compatibility issues, the largest of which is that
Debian uses libc6 (aka glibc2), while slackware still uses libc5.  You'll
need a version of libc6 to install any Debian packages.

You may wish to consider backing up your local data and applications and
installing Debian from scratch.
