Community Psychiatric Clinic and Sound, two providers of mental health and addiction treatment services in King County for more than 50 years, announced today their intent to combine operations to form a new, larger provider under the Sound name and brand.
Like many in the community, Sound watched, with interest, the recent KOMO-TV program, “Seattle is Dying.” As a provider of mental health, supported housing, addiction treatment and many other services in this community, we disagree with the overall message of “Seattle is Dying.”
As more Sound clients migrate out of the central Puget Sound area, Sound is making moves of its own. In spring of this year, Sound will open its 15th location, in the Kent business district, to ensure that clients who live in the area can more easily access the care they need.
Did you know that addiction to drugs or alcohol is a mental illness? Substance use disorder changes normal desires and priorities.
Mental and emotional well-being is essential to overall health. Positive mental health allows people to realize their full potential, cope with the stresses of life, work productively, and make meaningful contributions to their communities.
