Recovery Starts Today! will be held at the Ideal Option clinic in Marysville on Friday, February 24, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Ideal Option, a national leader in outpatient medication-assisted treatment for opioids, methamphetamine, alcohol and polysubstance, is partnering with Holman Recovery Center, Snohomish County Health Department, Marysville Police Department, EvergreenHealth Monroe, Providence, Catholic Community Services, A1 Lifeline, Washington 2-1-1, and The Hand Up Project to help people in Marysville get started in recovery.

According to the Medical Examiner’s Office Drug Overdose Dashboard, in Snohomish County alone, there were 162 overdose deaths involving opioids in 2022, with 141 of those involving fentanyl.

Ideal Option data support the effectiveness of medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder. Among patients who remained in treatment with Ideal Option during 2021, urine drug testing shows 98% less fentanyl use and 93% less total opioid use.

Recovery Starts Today! will take place on Friday, February 24, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Ideal Option clinic in Marysville located at 1617 Grove St. Attendees can surrender illicit substances and paraphernalia for safe disposal, learn about community resources, complete intake and, if desired, see a provider immediately to start medication-assisted treatment. For nearly all patients, costs are covered by Medicaid or private insurance.

This event is designed to empower those in the community who are struggling with the disease of addiction to come forward without fear of legal repercussions and begin their recovery with medication-assisted treatment.
