The Swinomish Indian Tribal Community has supported the expansion of services for all enrolled tribal members in the fight against the opioid crisis. We have developed the following services within the past four years: opiate task force, healthy community tip line, medication assisted treatment, transitional housing, a needle exchange and distribution of Naloxone Overdose Kits. Now we would like to share our knowledge, successes and approach with all community members.
Our vision is to improve the health and wellness of all individuals suffering from substance use disorders and provide the best possible tools for them to lead a healthy productive lifestyle.
