New Snohomish-Everett Branch Renovations – Finished!
Our Snohomish/Everett location has finished its renovations! With new rooms, care spaces, and expansions, our Snohomish/Everett branch is even more prepared to serve those in need. The Snohomish/Everett branch was set-up to allow THS to better serve Snohomish county.
The renovations added three counseling offices, two medical offices, a new staff lounge, and an additional group room. The new renovations greatly expand the Everett Branch’s ability to provide services. As a result of the renovations, the Everett team is able to provide access to more people who suffer from opiate addiction. The new space will be used for both counseling and medical services. One of the medical offices will be used for primary care, a service the THS team is eager to bring to the Everett Branch.

Addiction in Snohomish County
Snohomish suffers from some of the worst addiction rates in Washington state.
