 Bellingham Washington Drug Alcohol Rehab
If you are looking for alcohol or drug rehab in Bellingham, Washington, you’ll find 23 treatment programs within 24 miles of the city. The city is a port for ferries to Alaska, and it’s perfectly positioned between Seattle, the Canadian border, and Vancouver to act as a transportation and trade center. While this can be good for the economy, it’s also conducive to drug trafficking. As a result, Bellingham sees a constant influx of drugs entering the city. This flow has caused an uptick in overdose deaths and drug crime in the city in recent years. Authorities have made efforts to turn the tide, with alcohol and drug programs such as the Whatcom County Jail’s medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services for inmates with opioid use disorders. Services include Suboxone, Subutex, and Vivitrol, and the jail works with community MAT providers to ensure continuity of care upon release.1
