The Need

The Need2018-11-06T08:44:08+00:00

There is currently no Residential Substance Use Disorder Treatment program in Snohomish County for men and women struggling with addiction that accepts both private and state insurance. We recognize there are other local efforts under development designed to address this gap in service, but given recent escalating substance abuse trends, even they will not be able to deliver this needed service to all those struggling with addiction in our community.

Individuals needing Residential Substance Use Disorder Treatment who are also recommended by a medical professional to receive Medically Assisted Treatment have an even harder time accessing this service as only a few programs in the entire state allow the use of MAT for clients during Intensive Inpatient Treatment.

We believe with the rising rate of Opiate and other substance use disorders in Snohomish County, an Intensive Inpatient Treatment Program (that offers MAT) is needed locally to help individuals get clean and sober while remaining close to their families and community-based Recovery supports.

We believe there are strong benefits to a client’s Recovery when they can begin developing a sober support system during Inpatient Treatment and then utilize and strengthen this system in an outpatient setting, all thanks to having both these services within the same community.

We believe Holman Recovery Center (HRC) will achieve this goal and that one day it will be a place of healing and hope for those struggling with addiction in Snohomish County.

Here are some 2017 statistics for Snohomish County residents using public funding that we believe illustrate the need for HRC:
