Jamestown S’Klallam Healing Clinic (JSHC)
Behavioral Health and Family Integration Program
The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe (JST) has begun construction of the 17,000 square foot Jamestown S’Klallam Healing Clinic (JSHC). The clinic will be licensed through Washington State Department of Health and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as an Opiate Treatment Program (OTP) based Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program. The JST has contributed approximately $9,000,000 of Tribal funds towards the construction. In addition, we have secured $7,150,000 from the Washington State Department of Commerce.
The JSHC is dedicated to pioneering a level of holistic treatment and stigma-free access for individuals suffering from co-occurring disorders (COD) through utilizing MAT approaches to behavioral health treatment to individuals suffering from OUD. Through the use of holistic behavioral assessments and treatment, we want patients to begin to understand themselves, to understand their mental health diagnosis, the reason for the development of their COD, and to understand the effective treatment of their disorder for them to return to a life marked with meaningful relationships.
The Community Opioid Intervention Pilot Project (COIPP) year one funding would allow us to hire our Director of Integrated Behavioral Health and our Community Social Navigator to further develop the program, community education and outreach, and provide family and culturally appropriate staff training to three (3) new Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Counselors and three (3) new Behavior Health (BH) Counselors, before the MAT grand opening scheduled for January 2022. The COIPP funding will support the needed start up positions, allowing us to develop the program towards our full operational capacity beginning in year two employing approximately forty (40) people and treating up to 250 patients per day.
