CCS/CHS, considered an “essential service,” will continue to deliver critical services to our clients.

Operations under COVID-19 – Due to the virus, the restrictions make face-to-face Celebrate Recovery meetings impossible.

This scope of service allows Cocoon House to ensure they are reaching young people and families in all possible ways to ensure that every child has a home and a future. Opioid specific resources include client-led case management and goal-setting for youth and young adults 12-24 years old.

Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers
At Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers, we know that alcoholism and drug addiction are primary illnesses rather than derivative or secondary problems. Such illnesses may be diagnosed, treated, and arrested.

Our nationally recognized Residential, Intensive Outpatient, and Early Recovery programs tailor treatments around individual needs. In addition, we offer consultation/assessment, mental health, and virtual services. Our treatment consists of lectures and the development of an individual treatment plan incorporating counseling, nutritional and physical therapy, as well as reading assignments, 12-Step programs, and relaxation and stress-management techniques. Our residential program includes medically monitored detoxification. In all of our programs, recovery unfolds in a setting that is overwhelmingly positive, respectful, and safe. Visit Website

We have also suspended any patient programming off campus, with the exception of emergency medical or clinical purposes. Success in recovery includes being active in a supportive community and we are using video conferencing so that our residents can connect with local 12-step meetings. For our Alumni and individuals currently enrolled in one of our outpatient programs, we have set up an Alumni app that provides a HIPAA compliant space for individuals to receive support from each other, the staff, as well as get resources and tools for them to explore. In that same app, we offer a full continuum of virtual outpatient treatment so that our patients can continue with treatment while staying safe and healthy.

Snohomish Health District – The Viral Hepatitis Outreach program
The Viral Hepatitis Prevention & Outreach Program offers education and testing for Hepatitis C, harm reduction education, targeted counseling, overdose prevention information and resources, and Hepatitis C medical treatment referrals. Hepatitis C (Hep C) is a contagious liver disease spread through contact with the blood of a person who has the virus. It can result in serious liver damage, including liver failure. The disease progresses slowly, often showing no symptoms. That is why many people with Hep C don’t know that they have it. And many don’t know that is can be cured. Anyone who has a history of injection drug use, even if it is was only once years ago, may be at risk for Hepatitis. There is no vaccine to prevent hepatitis C, but a blood test can determine whether or not you are infected. Knowing your hepatitis C status can help you to learn how to prevent spreading hepatitis to others, how to protect your liver from further harm, and how to access treatment for hepatitis. Visit Website
Operations under COVID-19 – Under normal circumstances, testing is available at the AIDS Outreach Project/Snohomish County Syringe Exchange, Snohomish County Jail, Denney Juvenile Detention Center, and the Everett offices of Snohomish Health District.
