MCHC has been at the forefront of treating opioid addiction since 1998. At the time, the idea of responding to addiction as a medical problem was revolutionary. We worked with our neighbors and law enforcement to
resolve their concerns regarding neighborhood peace and safety. Working together, we were successful in helping overcome the stigma of opioid addiction. Since then, we continue to see that our patients are regaining control of their lives: holding jobs, reuniting their families, becoming healthier. We are proud of this good work and the difference it has made in many lives.
In 2011 opioid dependency services are provided at all MCHC Health Centers
