CHC of Snohomish County Offers Opioid Addiction Treatment

The Nation is in an opioid epidemic. In 2017, 72,000 people in the US died from drug overdoses. Of those, 49,060 were from opioids - up from the previous year. Snohomish County is seeing some of the worst of it, being second only to King County in Washington State with 100 opioid overdose deaths in 2017. This is a problem for our community, but there's help. 

Community Health Center of Snohomish County provides opioid addiction treatment to adults who are addicted to opiates and meet admission criteria. To learn more about Community Health Center's Medically Assisted Treatment Program, or M-A-T Program, The Everett Post's Tavis Buchan spoke with CHC's Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Tom Tocher.
